The ocean is one of the most dynamic and unpredictable subjects I photograph in nature. Its constant interaction with the coastline brings excitment and changes with every visit. It is that interaction - the forces that collide between land and water, that most compells me to photograph here. In this gallery my images showcase the action of the seas and the stunning beauty found along the rugged coastlines of the western US. These images are primarily from early in my career or very recent, since I went many years during my career without photographing the shore.
