Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Off the Rocky Coast

Just Off the Coast of Crescent City
The North Pacific is known for it's rocky and treacherous shoreline. Some of these "rocks" are more like small islands, that on bright sunny days like the day this shot from my archive was taken, make it seem like a great place to build a small island house. But then you have to remember just how bad the storms and waves can get. Photographically, obviously, these shores make for a more interesting photography session than stereotypical sandy beaches.

About the shot itself there's nothing really special about it. It's not an HDR (which I'm realizing I'm utilizing less and less these days) and was processed with Aperture and +Topaz Labs.
