My February 2014 Photo Of The Month is Sunset Middle Horizon, an image created at Sunset Cliffs Natural Park in San Diego, California.

I was not as active in February with my camera. I did photograph the Yuma “Bridge To Nowhere” which is an old remnant of the original U.S. Route 95. The evening of February 22 was certainly beautiful along the coast, and I have long enjoyed visiting Sunset Cliffs. I have made more images of Ross Rock than I can count, but each day I am there, something is different.

Keeping your horizon out of the center image is considered dogma in photography, yet I enjoy breaking the rule on occasion. It could be said that Ross Rock’s position in the center bottom is also a break of the “Rule of Thirds.” Indeed, I made some more traditionally composed images that evening, yet for some reason I find this composition more satisfying. Sometimes, it really is okay to break the rules.
