The curtain, Mission Beach, San Diego, California, 2010

One of the most vivid examples of nature at work is the daily passage of the sun itself around the earth. At dawn and sunset that passage is at its most impressive stage. When weather intervenes, it can at times become even more dramatic. This is what is happening here, as a setting sun falls through a curtain of low hanging storm clouds over the Pacific Ocean, creating a band of brilliant orange sky below it. Man can only watch in wonder and awe, as this pair of surfers is doing here. The very waves they ride are also creations of nature, as well as man himself.
