I shot this photo in Malibu, CA, at a beach I had never been to. I am discovering more and more how little I used to explore while growing up in Southern California and I am finding all of these new places now just a few hours away from my old home. El Matador beach is definitely the most stunning stretch coastline I have seen in Southern California. There were numerous caves and the light was beautiful. This little cave allowed me to capture the glowing ray of light coming through and also get some of the sky that was lighting up.I really enjoy the tide in this image as it is shaped like an "S" and gives the feeling of motion, leading you out through the cave and into the sea. The shape of the cave reminds me of a famous sea stack in Australia named "Horse Head Rock," a place I have always dreamed of shooting.

This composition is perfect. The edge of the wave is a beautiful S shape leading strait to the hole in the cliff.
