I have had a mind’s eye view of this image since December, 2012, the last time I was at El Matador State Beach in Malibu, CA. I envisioned it as a monochrome with etherial waves floating as if passing through the rocks along the shore, and opacus clouds tracing the sky. I was unable to make the capture that day because it started to rain, my Nikon was getting wet, and I already had one nice image on my CF card. Four years later my vision has finally come to fruition. Hope you like it.

William Claxton

“My wife Peggy says photography is jazz for the eye. I can’t separate the two. They’re so similar. You study, you get the basic framework down, then you improvise based on a plan.”

Mother Nature is the greatest artist of them all. All I had to do was compose (with the aid of a sturdy tripod) and trip the shutter. This image was captured in one of the many canyons with streams and pools that flow from the Catalina Mountains outside of Tucson, Arizona.

The above image was captured in June 1994. It is a World Peace Gate to the 1988 Summer Olympics, in Olympic Park (올림픽공원), Seoul, South Korea. This is where U.S. sprinter Florence Griffith Joyner of Los Angeles California set an Olympic record (10.62) in the 100-meter dash and a still-standing world record (21.34) in the 200-meter dash to capture gold medals in both events. To these medals, she added a gold in the 4×100 relay and a silver in the 4×400. Go Flo Jo!

I nicknamed this image Korea’s Horseshoe Bend after Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River near Page, Arizona. The Korean version doesn’t have the over the top grandeur and raging Colorado. Instead, it has a more subtle, serene beauty…like everything else in South Korea.
