larrybeard The ocean came to life and then some with the pulsing south swell. Although the lack of sun and blowing north wind made it challenging for photography, the power and beauty came though. Black and white photography is a different animal since the industry move away from film. It takes a different set of skills to do great black and white photography these days. And yet it still has an amazing feel.

So pumped for @rustylong . He is releasing his big wave book called "The Finest Line". Not only is Rusty one of my fav guys to shoot with, but he is also a super talented photographer and writer.

But most of all pick up a book and Rusty will sign it for you. I will be there showing support and showing a 30x40 aluminum of my Limited Edition "Mystic Power". A perfect power wave from a recent trip with Rusty.

larrybeard This weather has had us in a bit of a stranglehold. I had to go back a few weeks to find this vortex of color. there's nothing like getting that first light coming into the barrel and to put in that golden touch on it.

larrybeard Happy Earth Day
I thought this new image was fitting for Earth Day. Stan​, Tony​ and I went out to Joshua Tree to shoot the Milky Way. The Lyrid Meteor Shower decided to drop a meteor right in one of the 5 shots it took to make this panoramic image. We are laughing at the improbability of catching a meteor in a photo. Tonight is the peak of the Lyrid Meteor Shower, so get out there if you have the chance and have clear skies. Mostly cloudy around here.

Back to Earth Day, I just want to encourage all of us to at least make some small efforts to help our environment. The small things add up. Example, we get three gallon reusable bottles for our local water store and fill our smaller reusable bottles. We have three in our household. Not using 10 water bottles per day adds up to 3650 plastic bottles not going out to our environment per year.
It adds up.... Please help support a clean earth, tag and share this

larrybeard Dawning Bliss

One of my favorite things is to get up early and get that early morning glass. The ambient colors and lighting are amazing. And a empty beach for some solitude and perspective searching.

larrybeard Checkout @cbook4 his new 60x40 aluminum piece. Craig shot this back lit tonal stunner with Danny sitting in the barrel.
One of the really cool things is getting to help friends and clients in the whole photography to fine art transition. Craig is a good friend and talented human. It was a pleasure working together on this project.
Thanks Craig and congrats on such an amazing piece.
If you looking to print one of you images on metal or canvas hit me up.

larrybeard Teal Turbine. I got a chance to get back in the water today after that trip out to the mountains and deserts. The water was 67°, so I just had to trunk it. Somehow I got this gem. There's something about turbines that put me in a state of amazement. This is happening when the lip of the wave hits the water and starts pushing through creating these power veins. A truly amazing site.

larrybeard • Photo Of The Week •

I am back from the Sierras and Death Valley. I am going through files and reflecting on our trip. This is one of my favs. This is a Bristlecone Pine and they are found at 10,000 foot above sea level. It has been on my list to go shoot for quite some time. Tony​ and I had to hike the day before and find a location. Then we woke ar 2:00 am to hike in the 20 degree air in order to catch the rising Milky Way. These trees are considered one of the oldest living organisms on the planet. Some dating 5000 years old. It is amazing all the elements and logistics that came together for this image.

We will be at HB Surf City Nights on Main St. tomorrow and SC ArtWalk on Sunday. Come down and checkout prints and chat about this amazing trip.

larrybeard Thanks to Jody Hawkins I was able to light and shoot the 130 Caltech Radio Telescope. Jody contacted me after seeing my post in front of the Caltech property. Turns out her husband David is one of the main directors for the Caltech Observatory. We met up with David and he gave us a tour where he took us up into the 130 foot beast. He then gave us permission to shoot. What are the chances? I love going with the flow and seeing what opportunities arise. Thanks so much Jody and David. You really made my day. 1mon

larrybeard Good morning everybody. We got up at 2 o'clock in the morning to get to this spot. All I can say is, well I'm actually at a loss for words. As they say on Wayne's world, I'm not worthy! Lol This was taken from my iPhone so I could post it right away. I can't wait to see what I have in the can. Metal prints on aluminum, forget about it. 1mon
