This is one of my favorite images of the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. I made this image while piloting my Cesna 172 at about 6,000 ft. on a wonderful late winter evening. This photo was shot on ISO 200 Fujichrome film pushed one stop which accounts for the slight grain which I love. Ah, the days of film were so romantic.
This looks like fun in a tropical paradise but this is the Pacific Ocean just of the Long Beach coast and, it's cold. The weather on land is balmy but out here in the waters between Long Beach and Catalina the water is at its coldest of the year. All hands need to be sturdy and tough when the wind blows and the ocean spray flies.
