Bodega Bay Moonrise

On a February night in 2015, the day after a storm brought 4 inches of rain and 50 knot winds, Bodega Bay sat still - very still. Earlier that night I was photographing near the docks and a few fishermen came off their boats to see what I was up to. They were actually coming out to see if I was a snooping insurance adjustor or something – to which I received a few salty barks and spotlight blasts to the camera lens before I explained I was just taking pictures for art sake. After successfully completing their screening process we hung out a bit and they shared that they couldn't remember a night that was this calm. I couldn't either and I think it made the photographic results beautifully serene.
