Description When the wind is just right, the skies above Black's Beach team with para gliders and hang gliders. This particular shot was taken at a 10mm focal length (15mm full-frame equivalent) as I stood very near the edge of a 300 foot sand cliff above the Pacific Ocean. The gliders ride the updrafts as the wind comes off the ocean and shoots straight up along the face of the cliff. These thrill seekers can ride these winds for extended periods of time and never lose altitude.The Gliderport is located on the Torrey Pines State Reserve, nestled between the beach towns of La Jolla and Del Mar. La Jolla can be seen in the background of this photo as it extends out into the ocean to form a point. And those little dots on the sand below... those are people.
Brian Auer, Rathdrum Member Since December 2007 Artist StatementI love photography! All genres, formats, styles, etc. I've been serious about my own photography since about 2003, and I continue to learn and grow as an artist on a daily basis. I found out a while ago that my photos aren't cut out for the stock photography game, so here I am trying to break into the fine art market.
I shoot a little bit of everything, but some of my passions are street photography and black & white photography.
I'm just getting started here on ImageKind, so check back later for more photos!
