Photographer Delaney Allen takes us through his process of capturing the ocean at its most beautiful, ferocious, and humbling.More
This image, from my series Between Here And There, was the first time I photographed the waves crashing on the Oregon coast. I'm fortunate to live within proximity of the Pacific Ocean after growing up in a fairly landlocked area.
In 2009, I researched where it might be best to photograph along the coastline and eventually made my way to the central coast. I only took a handful of photos that day, I was so mesmerized by what I was watching.
A majority of the Oregon coast is formed by volcanic rock. In some areas you can walk along the jagged rocks when the tide pulls out. I was fortunate to catch this specific tide pool as the reflection of the sunset was hitting just right.
