April 10, 2015, Hurricane Point, Big Sur Coast. My dog and I decided that conditions were right for a ride down the coast. Travels with Chewy. And Nikon.

We made it as far south as Hurricane Point. Crystal clear. The horizon went halfway to Hawaii. And so did the sunbeam. Chewy and I looked out to sea. He turned and looked to me as if to say, “this is special.” A sea dog. A wise one.

Aided by a neutral density filter, I exposed to preserve the highlights. Back home, post-processing brought out the wispy clouds. I cropped in homage to Rothko.

Fast-forward to earlier this week. I was looking through Mark Rothko paintings while preparing the last blog post and this jumped out at me. I had no idea that this particular painting existed.


Mark Rothko, Untitled (Black on Grey), 1970, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

That muse gets around.
