After some very large storms rolled into Santa Barbara, California. Nine boats had been washed ashore. It was very sad to see, but beautiful to photograph.

I am self taught and believe that I have a gift and must share it with the world. The interplay of light in nature is one of the earths most wonderful gifts and I try my best to capture that moment in time.

    The image is superb, the reality dreadfully sad. I hope there were no casualties.

  • Hi Jesika, luckily there were no casualties with exception to the boats. It was sad to see this, but they did make for a great photographic opportunity.
