Photographer David Orias Makes the Pacific Ocean Look like Rainbows and Gold

July 17, 2013 in Art, Nature, Photography

Photographer David Orias relies on slow shutter speeds, precision camera movement and the rich light of dawn or dusk to capture these amazing images just off the California coast. Of these particular shots Orias says:

I often use the camera to see our world in ways our eyes cannot see. I do this by using long shutter speeds and camera motion to achieve this goal. I am often asked where the colors on my waves come from. I shoot mostly at dawn and the geography of the location allows higher ambient light levels before the full illumination by the sun. Colors are created by different weather conditions, amount of clouds or even smoke in the air from local wildfires which are often prevalent.

You can see much more of his work over on 500px and Flickr.
