Crashing Waves at Sunrise Del Mar Torrey Pines Beach Photographer

Guess where I was at sunrise this morning?

Torrey Pines!  We started off our adventure looking east –

Good Morning Mr. SUN!!!!

This next portrait was just a few minutes before the sun peeked out…..and everything was cold (46 degrees) and blue….

And then the crashing waves called us to the other side of Coast Highway to watch the sun continue to rise….

The waves were pretty incredible – and clearly had been much higher overnight.

Here are two versions of the same scene – tell me which one you like better.  This one was captured with a high speed camera setting,

so the waves are frozen and you can see each little drop and spray of water.

This second photo was made with a long shutter setting so instead of the waves looking crisp they look foamy and soft.

I think I like the second one – how about you?

We enjoyed a bit of a walk checking out the waves that were pounding the coast and swallowing the beach~


And I said a little prayer for the safety of this lone surfer…..
