July 13, 2018. San Gregorio Bluffs, San Mateo County, California.
The bluffs over San Gregorio Beach are a favorite spot for me. They provide a high enough vantage point for me to see far out to sea with an oblique perspective for light play on the surface, and they get me far enough above the water to prevent having too much detail on the water. Sometimes detail is a distraction.
I’ve long been drawn to horizons. Horizontal lines tend to be soothing; vertical lines are jarring. I go for soothing. The horizon, reassuringly lateral and far away helps create a feeling of stability and space. And it’s good to have a feeling of stability and space. Especially in today’s world.￼￼
And especially when it’s a dark and moody early evening.
