The Observer

My brother took me out to one of his surf spots so I could photograph while he surfed.  As soon as we pulled up I was struck by the golden grass all around. The early morning sky was overcast and the grass was glowing in the diffused light, and waves of it were covering the dunes.  The landscape was interesting just by itself, especially with the cloudy sky but then one of the surfers climbed the dunes to check out the waves on the other side and I really liked the addition of a human to give scale to the grass and to interrupt the rhythm and texture. 


  1. I really like this photo. It has the feel of a cloudy, blustery day. Very contemplative feel with the lone individual looking out over the scene below.

  2. This photo has so much going for it but to me the basic composition of a single individual between two elements of nature (brush and sky) plus the differences in texture between the two make. Nicely done POY!
