I'm 16, live in Central California and I love the ocean and photography. Refugio Beach really sparked my interest in the ocean for me at a young age, with its clear water and its nice little point break. I first heard about the spill from my dad who is actually in charge of one the clean up crews. As soon as I heard about it I got my stuff and drove down there. When I first arrived all the campers were leaving and they looked pretty pissed off. It wasn't that great of a vibe there, having to see the once white sand beach turned black. I was there for an hour and got some shots before I had to leave. Hopefully the clean up is somewhat quick and we can get back to pristine Refugio we all enjoyed. To see more images go to: and
