This is, once again, from my favorite location to shoot at in La Jolla. The tide pools along that small section of coast, are so dynamic, it would be impossible to get the same shot twice. I have visited this location many times before, so I tried to stray from the normal sandstone formations I normally shoot, and find a new composition. With the tide higher than normal, I decided to use it to my advantage, and show the waves crashing and interacting with the rock. I made sure to use a long exposure to show the movement of the water and sea foam as they moved through the eroding rock. Wave after wave, I kept taking photos to try to get the perfect look of the water sweeping over the rock. After a half hour in this location and hundreds of photos of the rock formations, I knew I had captured what I needed with this single image. I decided to have this photo in black and white to accentuate the rough texture of the protruding stone, and the silky look of the moving water.
