North Rocks, Black's Beach: Moon Shadows

oban tate-e 16 1/8 by 11 3/4 in., 41.1 by 30 cm

This print, and its sunshine companion, 'Hazy Sunlight,' are the seventh and eighth prints in Binnie's Black's Beach series depicting views from each of the six main access points to the remote California beach. The print shows a figure perched on the large rocks which form a headland between Black's Beach itself and Torrey Pines Beach to the north, a state nature reserve. This long view southwards down the beach allows the brightly lit clouds around the moon to reflect in the ebbing waves of the Pacific Ocean, and the cliffs are reflected in the area of waterlogged wet sand at the ocean's edge. The foreground rocks of the title are also particularized and each is printed with a unique color and texture to depict the individual stones and pebbles themselves.
