While browsing through blog rolls a wave washed over me. Debbie Smythe’s One Word Sunday and the subject, “Wave.”
I have hundreds of photos of waves so the most difficult part of the challenge was to cull the archives to find a handful of photos for this topic.
I’ve always lived within a short drive of the ocean and for a time I took the ocean and the waves for granted. That changed with the pandemic. During the winter months, a wide open lonely beach was one of the safest places to be. I visited the beaches of San Mateo County, California almost weekly.
It was a good opportunity to experiment with slow shutter speeds and a tripod.
It’s during the winter months when the wave action in California is at its peak.
Waves pound the rocks at Grey Whale Cove Beach.
Just yesterday I took a drive to San Francisco’s Fort Point, located beneath the Golden Gate Bridge. There’s a surf break here that curls sharply from underneath the bridge towards the rocky shoreline. I stopped for a bit to watch surfers ride the frigid waters beneath a world famous landmark.
