My September 2016 Photo of the Month is Gray Reflecting Moment, an image made at Hospitals Reef in La Jolla during a dark but beautiful morning.

Hospitals Reef is one of the defining locations of San Diego and La Jolla, and the location is extremely well known for sunsets. The potholes are such a draw that people have been known to bring buckets of water to fill them if the tide was too low. My friend Alex Kunz and I decided to shoot it in the morning.

Indeed, there were very few people around, especially because it was a little chilly with the onshore flow being seasonally thick.

It is difficult to make an image here that is unique, but I hope I came up with a photograph that doesn’t looks like all of the other sunsets!

As always, I thank you very much for reading.
