Tidepools at Sunset Cliffs

Tidepools at Sunset Cliffs

I went out to Garbage beach at the south end of Sunset Cliffs for sunset. I have been out here a few times before but never managed to shoot this rock formation. I knew from my prior trips that the tide (at about 2') would be just right for the photo I had in mind: I wanted the rock formation with the pools of water reflecting the last bit of sunlight. However I didn't want the water to be disturbed by incoming waves.

Purchase a Print


Purchase a beautiful collectible print made with the finest archival papers and pigment inks. The prints are made on a heavyweight acid free paper with a smooth satin finish. Each print will be signed using an archival pen in the margin beneath the image. I love printing with fine art papers and this is my preferred medium. You can learn more about how I make my prints here.
