Conservation Center Photography Show -- Boulders Along the Atlantic Ocean after the Wave, Nova Scotia 1997

Photographing along Long Cove, Nova Scotia in 1997 (see previous post) I made several images of the ocean water crashing into the rocky coast.  This image is a more tranquil time when the water swirled around the rocks and gave a more peaceful presence even when the dark rocks contrasted with the (momentarily) quiet water.  The foam aftermath of the waves creates luminous water, alive with light.  This image was made with an old (ancient) Calumet monorail 4x5 view camera and grey scale film.  The image was printed with pigment ink on Hahnemülhe photo rag paper (308gsm weight).
