Echoes of the Wave - Jay Patel

Echoes of the Wave


While I was photographing seals on a beach in Redwood Forest National Park, I noticed this glowing ridge about two miles away. I got in the car and drove closer to see if I could get a photo.

This shot was something of an accident. I was trying to capture leading lines formed by the waves pointing toward the brilliantly lit ridge. After several unsuccessful attempts, I gave up and started to focus on other shots. When I got home, I was instantly drawn to this photograph because of the repeating patterns. Notice that the shape of the ridge seems to be repeated in the foam on the beach.

Every once in a while, it is kind of nice when things don’t go according to plan.
