While we were picnicking at San Onofre State Park last Easter Sunday, we took a long walk down the beach toward Camp Pendelton, where the public beach officially ends.

I have always been fascinated with what the ocean tide creates on its own and in this case, a long strand of kelp that became loose and drifted ashore. The resulting pattern did not require any intervention from me and with each surge of the surf, the pattern changed slightly. Then it was only up to me to choose where to stand and compose the resulting photograph. Of the variations I photographed, I find that the shape of the kelp in this image seemed the most suggestive.

I find this just an interesting singular image that pokes my imagination.
