1/2 'High Contrast' Assignment for ThisIsAPhotoBlog

i spent new years weekend with some amazing people in jenner, ca, where the russian river meets the pacific ocean. our cabin overlooked the river but each day we ventured down to the wild pacific. the ocean up there has a raw, beautiful, dangerous energy and the wave above splashed me up to my shoulders. i ran back to safety after grabbing this shot and a good thing i did because the next wave would have gone over my head (now that would have been a photo!) check out the other photographer's images @
