Santa Barbara-based photographer David Orias captures stunningly colorful photos of waves along the coast of Southern California. To capture the unusual bands of color, Orias takes long exposure photos of the waves in early morning light. Cloud cover, wildfire smoke, and other atmospheric conditions cause variations in the colors. For more photos, see his pages on Flickr and 500px.
