Morning glide

Pretty hard to beat a morning such as this in the glassy water's of Laguna beach, California. I especially love this capture because of the reflections from the rising sun and clouds on the wave's face as the curl of this perfect art piece is framing a passing pelican in the sky. Hope you like! For fine art and prints of this image contact me @ stanmonizphoto@gmail.com

A dream come true

Well what can I say about this particular blessed evening at the Wedge in Newport beach? Well I can say this. It Just absolutely was a dream come true... With a great size swell in the water mixed with perfect glassy conditions and a unforgettable sunset this surf photographer was one happy camper. A evening to go down in the books for sure and will forever be stored in those happy memories for the rest of my life. For fine art and prints of this image contact me @ stanmonizphoto@gmail.com

Seal beach

Winter time equals the start of the Northern hemisphere swell activity. This beach break comes alive on the months between November to March. Along with a flat landscape which lines up perfectly with the rising sun the possibilities are endless! Here is a shot of the sun just making it's way above the horizon line casting it's a beautiful reflection up the waves face.

Ocean in motion

A colorful summer sunrise at the Wedge in Newport beach, California. A image I'm very particular to because of the skill and timing to execute a shot like this. This was taken at a 40th of a second to slow the motion of the ocean giving it the sense of speed and acceleration. For fine art and prints of this image contact me @ stanmonizphoto@gmail.com

Oil and water

A one in a million capture taken at sunrise on a colorful and tranquil summer morning at the infamous Wedge in Newport beach, California.
