Big Sur Stars

Big Sur Stars

Earlier this year I had quite the late night adventure driving the Big Sur coastline and photographing the stars on a moonless night.  I had some time to enjoy the vastness of the night sky as I was shooting a time-lapse. While laying there in the dark, the combination of hearing crashing waves and watching the stars provided an interesting juxtaposition. Visually I could get lost scanning the stars, but the ocean seemed to keep me anchored so as to not completely escape into the ether. While I’ve photographed the Milky Way atop tall mountains, volcanos and the desert photographing it on the coast has been the most surreal simply because the role the ocean plays breaking the silence.
