WESTON BEACH 4 © 2004Point Lobos, CA
I was invited to be a part of a discussion group for View Camera Magazine at the Monterrey Convention of Mammoth Cameras. I photographed Point Lobos when I was young and had always wanted to return. I took advantage of the trip out west to spend some time at Point Lobos. It was low tide when I took this picture, so I was able to capture the textures and shapes of this rock formation. Point Lobos is a photographer’s paradise. No wonder Weston enjoyed photographing there so much, and why they named this beach after him. I was fortunate to arrive at the beach at low tide and was able to photograph these wonderful rocks along the edge of the tide line.
