November 23, 2019 — Pescadero Beach, San Mateo County, California
I’ve worked on this image six times between November and now. It was never quite right.
Sometimes when I don’t love an image, it’s because I’ll never love it and the best thing to do is abandon it and move on. Other times, I just need to leave it alone for a while and come back with a fresh perspective. This was the latter circumstance and I knew it would be.
