16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Surfing the day away.
San Clemente Local Barrett Miller surfing the evening away on a brisk January evening. Water was in the 50's and air was about the same. Barrett opted for board shorts in the frigid water, as I was swimming with my camera in a 5mm wetsuit. The photo and light make it seem like a warm summer evening, when it was exactly the opposite. Photo was taken at San Onofre State Beach, the Mecca of Southern California surfing.
