Santa Monica Beach

The other day I was feeling like a needed some photographic inspiration. I started thinking about the time I went down to the Santa Monica Pier to catch the sunset and photograph the ferris wheel. There was something very inspiring about being next to all that energy from the waves and the beautiful light that you can only get by the ocean.

After working on these images I decided to spread them out over three separate posts. There are distinct looks that I was going for, and I don't want to mix them all into the same post. Today's images are more "as I saw them" type images. Let me know what you think.

These are MARVELOUS! True beauty in it's simplest form. I know you spent some time waiting patiently on the beach, but wow, it was well worth it man.

I love seeing the faint outline of the mountains in the background. You really picked a perfect spot. These are so inspiring.

Gorgeous and serene and truly a feast for my eyes. I love the footprints, the sunset, the seagull, and oh yeah, those mountains in the background ... ??? I went to school there. :-) Those Malibu sunsets were my favorite part of the day.

#3 and #5 are my favs, but really... they are all gorgeous!

You really had to be there at the right time.

Great shots. My fav I think is the silouette of the bird but they are all rocking.
