Discovering Shelter Cove

Apr 24, 2014 by Petschek in Art, Full Moon, Personal Assignment

After moving to the bay area, I went for a drive through San Francisco and the peninsula. I discovered Pacifica and its unique geography. Scrunched against the coast into a rocky, aggressive collaboration of water and land, I found  a small neighbourhood of houses huddled together in this cove. There were less than 20 houses spread along the beach. Each with lights on and plenty of space. If I was driving down the highway I would have never seen this place. It was a long hike from the road to the beach to the place called Shelter Cove.

It was a long hike from the road to the water. I was carrying too much equipment and the stairs were wet and slippery. So I opted to post up on the stairs and get the overview. The moon was just jumping in and out of the clouds which would give me some interesting light. I set up to expose for 30 seconds to get the clouds streaking across the sky and smooth out the crashing waves.

After about an hour of walking, exposing and waiting, I finally got the photos that I wanted. It was a good evening.
