One of my favorite areas on the west coast of the United States is Orange County. More specifically, Laguna Beach and Newport Beach are sublime. After visiting and area around Corona Del Mar for the third pre-dawn morning sun, I got the marine layer, light and perfect tidal flow all working in unison.
Indication was the image that made final cut out of several outstanding images from this morning. It was amazing how moving just several feet to the left or right would completely change the outline of the rocky outcrop in the middle ground of this image.
For me, this image has the perfect balance of granular detail in the foreground, that ethereal look in the middle with that stark compass pointing north that glides with the clouds.
