"Painted Motion" | Abstract Ocean Wave Print

Patrick Sanford

Size Guide
Fine Art Photography by Patrick Sanford. A vibrant orange sunset illuminates the soft swells of these abstract ocean waves. Original photographs are available on fine art paper or gallery wrapped canvas.

    • One thing that has always drawn me to the ocean was that the colors reflected, and texture of the water continuously changes throughout the day. Capturing the motion of the ocean using a panning technique became a search for a needle in a haystack. For a every handful of images shot you may only get one where all the elements come together to create a smooth, beautiful image reflecting that exact perfect moment.

      "Growing up in Southern California I have always been drawn to the coast and constantly changing environment...I stumbled into surf / landscape photography and became immediately hooked on not only the act of surfing but also the culture, and natural environment that the surrounded it. This quickly became the perfect foundation for my photography." Read more.
