"Sunset Fire" | Abstract Ocean Surf Print

Fine Art Photography by Patrick Sanford. An abstract ocean photograph of surfers waiting to catch their few final waves at dusk. Original photographs are available on fine art paper or gallery wrapped canvas.

    • I took this shot off Windansea Beach in La Jolla when there were wildfires raging north of San Diego. The smoke had drifted south and created a red glow at dusk. Capturing the line up of surfers created a compelling composition, with the blue of the ocean only becoming visible in a breaking wave.

      "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.
