Asilomar Surf - Asilomar State Park, Pacific Grove, California
This was such a complex situation that it was hard to keep the entire thing in my head without losing concentration. I noticed several areas with dramatic action and I wanted to capture it all in a single photograph. It took a long time to accomplish this while keeping the camera dry. I almost always get wet as I get as close as I can.
Every once in a while a wave would strike the rock to the left in back. Sometimes nice waves would form out in the open ocean. Sometimes the wave would hit the rock in the foreground. And after some waves, the foam would gradually clear a bit allowing light to penetrate the water and show off the color in there.
