Bodega Head

Bodega Head, Bodega Bay, California

Bodega Bay, California

This view looks down to the ocean from the cliffs of Bodega Head, which is part of the Sonoma Coast State Beach, in Bodega Bay, California. Use of a wide-angle lens captures the sense of the great height of the cliffs, showing the swirling Pacific surf far below. I liked the contrast of the vivid colors of the brush on the cliff and the highlights on the water, and I waited for just the right wave to add the circular composition to the top of the scene. Choice of a small lens aperture allows all of the elements of the scene to be in focus.
