Summerland beach wave

I am a photographer and current student at Brooks Institute. I read the article on the mystery of the Summerland oil seepage and I’m glad somebody sees the problem the way I do. It is an absolute disaster, and I have photographs that I would like to share with you from last month when I was shooting a late-season west swell. … In this shot from the beach, you can see the rainbow coloration all over the face of this wave. I know it’s oil. I swam in it.
