The evening marine layer was quickly moving in as the sun slowly dipped closer and closer to the horizon. Everything seemed to be happening in seconds, the ocean was now at my knees, the tide was moving in. Quickly I realized I needed to find a new composition, I settled atop a small rock giving me the extra height and allowing me to be out of the water. Recomposing the camera the spray of the ocean was in my face and all over my lens. This photograph was a balancing act of a longer exposure and the non stop drying of my camera lens. Seconds after capturing this image I was waste deep in the crashing surf and the marine layer engulfed the coastline. The feeling of escape was the only thing on my mind.
