Midday.. Flat light.. Clouds.. I usually hate shooting on days like these. But once in awhile you find an angle that breaks all your rules. Like when @handsomerobinson walked in front of the sun on this Joshua Tree highline. For maybe 2 minutes the clouds parted enough for this halo of light to emerge.. It looks like photoshop ..but isn't. I guess sometimes just being there is everything.
It's been said we are drawn to high places. Maybe that's why John Muir & Teddy Roosevelt stood atop this exact location and stared out over Yosemite falls in 1903. A meeting that ultimately helped create Yosemite National Park. The times have changed but the effect of a view like this remains the same.
Offshore winds and a West swell along the California coast can create a canvas like no other. Those rare days when the wind is perfect & everything seems to come together is what first made me pick up a camera and shoot surfing. I'm not usually one to speculate but if this El Niño pattern continues it could make for an incredible ( and maybe a bit destructive) Winter season in the Pacific. @surfer_magazine @_natetyler
