Wilder Ranch State Park beach sunset, Santa Cruz, California

Taken at Two Mile Beach near Santa Cruz, California, on October 21st, 2010

In the Fall of 2010, I was making a great effort to simplify my photographic compositions. On this evening, while searching for something simple to compose on, I came across this single rock and decided to shoot a photo which emphasized the lone rock and the foamy wash around it. Composing the shot wasn’t quite as simple as it sounds though, as every time a wave hit the beach, it would roll the rock up and back down the sand. Finally the rock stabilized for a few precious seconds in this position and I was able to fire off this shot.
