Here is a companion view to last week's 'Sandstone and Sky', as I tried to line up the sandstone to the clouds above by moving down the beach. This one got me wet, but I wanted to get lower to capture a livlier scene with the wave impacting the rock.

This was about 1 hour after sunrise. I rarely see good light in California much after about 1/2 hour after sunrise or 1/2 hour before sunset so I made the most of it! But the last two weeks of stormy weather have changed that a bit.

1/15 second exposure @F22 with 2 ND grad 0.9's

Yes Dave, it was like a bit object was right overhead!

Dougie, it is clear righ tnow, but some places have flooded so I hope to get some streams heading into the ocean while I can.

Jacqueline, this was about an hour after a brilliant sunrise, so yes, you don't need the intense colours all the time. I may put up the sunrise one sometime.

Godo to hear from you Chris. I was wondering where you'd gone.

True Martin, this has more action and is livlier and there is more sun here. The last one was about structure I think.

LOL Stuart, watch out for migraines!

Hi Patrick, I like the fg rock clarity and colours, the eye catching sky and the sea to the rhs but for me the crashing wave is slightly distracting and blocking my view to the gap in the clouds where the light source is eminating from. Small quibble really but it does mar it a little for me, you can tell me to mind my own business if you want since I suspect you tried hard to catch that wave. Wink

I'm late to the party, and all's been said. A fabulous capture and well worth getting some salt water in your shoes for (or were you barefoot?).

Anne, the party is still on. I was barefoot, though I often use those open water shoes so I can walk on sharp rocks through the water. The temp year round is between about 12c and 16c. It even feels warmer in the winter sometimes than the summer. Probably because of the cooler air in winter.

LOL Pete, what sky?

I just came back to this shot and noticed a slight difference in colour cast between this and the last upload, despite people saying it's good to warm up an image i do think this slightly cooler image is more pleasing to the eye, maybe co's it's an ocean scene and blues are good here....just my tupence.

Yes Terry, this is a cooler image because this was taken after the last one, so the sun was higher and brighter. At first I was thinking of making them the same, but this was how it was in the RAW file so I left it alone.
