This may be my last upload of the year. I've injured my finger and I can only type with one hand for a while!

First light at the northern tip the Monterey penninsula about 90 miles south of San Francisco. It was one of those mornings that really makes you feel so fortunate to be alive to see this in person. The birds were out and the surf was up. In the distance about 40 miles away to the north are the 3,000 foot Santa Cruz mountains.

This was another very 'refreshing' image to make but I had my plastic bag at hand. It may appear as though I sometimes make light of the dangers of the Pacific, but I do respect the sea. Just last week, a big wave rider named Peter Davi lost his life in 70 (yes seventy!) foot surf not far from here. He was preparing for the Mavericks surf contest by riding the big ones nearby.

I stay away from those!

Janet, is that why you are called 'Chase?' Because of the chasing waves? Okay, time to go capture some big ones just for you! The problem is that they break far offshore so I'll have to go to extremes I think to get one!

Yes Guy, the rock in back is about 20 feet tall so the spray is above that. But the waves on the Pacific side to the left are much larger. These ones on the bay side are more manageable... and surviveable! My tripod was on a 6 foot tall rock above the sand I was still getting wet every time. I wanted to be close but still get a higher view out to the mountains. And the bigger waves were blocking them.

the wave action is well caught but it's a shame you got shadow on the foreground rocks, a strange composition with the rocks leading you to one side of the image instead of the usual into the image, it works well though leaving space for the ocean, nice one.

Yes Terry, I wanted a bit of open ocean in there and the shadow allows a view into the water with no glare, but some foreground still had light on the bubbles. I wanted a bit of everything in this one.

Thanks Suzan. Are you guys going to have a winter? We are getting the polar air constantly for several weeks now so you are getting the warm air.

John (slogger), that is when I'm running for my life! Actually I do have one like that just before I got hit, but the bigger ones go way over that rock and look messy. Ideally though, yes, so I made sure the foreground have a little foam in there.

I think you'll be getting it Suzan, though the cold air is stubbornly staying out west for now and heading north as it moves east.

Neither can I Freda. The front page of the local paper showed a giant wave today.

Thanks for looking in!

It does seem that way sometimes Dave (dp). Timing it is really hard sometimes, because you want to catch all of this motion in a non-chaotic way. And then there is the timing problem of being in the right place at the right time. I guess it is like that with everything in a way, timing and luck count for more than people realize.

John (laurel), you do make a different frame for each one, so it does fit in when you look at everything in your pf. So that is fine.

Well Kathy, next time keep going. I'll show you and whoever you bring around.

Thanks John (robway), but you don't see the rubbish shots I make!

Hello Patrick.
Long time no see. Happy New Year to you.
Myself, I am too busy with uploading daily pictures at Treklens.com (Janone) so no time left so far for epz aswel, but I intent to in near future again.
The main reason, I visit your site and atmire you fantastic picture, is, I mentioned your name and portfolio to an other photographer from Califonia, who also upload on treklens. His name is Vincent James.
Will be nice when he have a look on your portfolio too.
Very best wishes from Jan1
See you later.

Great work, Patrick. I love the contrast of the warm light on the rocks against the cooler tones of the sea. I love the contrast of the blur of the sea against the pin sharpness of the rocks, and I like the capture of the distant crashing wave as this provides a focal point to lead the eye to. In short - I love it. Smile
