      Juror's Comment

      From Kate Jordahl:

      "This image has colors that glow and a sense of time with the moving clouds and light. The abstract quality makes this a photographs that is both timeless and about the progression of time. “What is made with time, time respects” – In this image, I sense both the many photographs that were made in preparation for this photograph and the time that passed during its creation."

    Artist Statement

    "This impressionistic photo was in my mind for a long time. Many tries failed until one miserable, cold, windy, afternoon when the light was vibrant, the tide showed the right amount of shore and surf, and the composition of the wave spacing worked. I was alone out there on the cliff overlooking the scene. That evening I combined several exposures. In the morning I was pleased to see the result."
