The process of taking these pictures involved scoping out a location along the shore to set up the tripod/camera. Then, while focusing my gaze on the horizon, I would enter a meditative dreamlike state that often lasted for several hours. During that time, I would take only a few pictures. Depending on the interplay between sky, sea, sunlight, and my state of mind, the exposures lasted anywhere from seconds to minutes.
Prints from this series take on a painterly quality. It's not surprising I have always admired color field paintings, especially ones from the 1940s to 1960s.
