Sugar Loaf Rock

I posted this rock previously but it has been awhile ago.  Recently a person contacted by me via the blog who wanted permission to print it for a gift.  His request motivated me to go shoot it again.  The stormy weather was just clearing.  You get pretty wet taking a 45 second exposure with an incoming tide.

In the Storm

My last post was taken between storms.  This morning is was raining and blowing pretty good.  Pismo Rock is a place I go to often looking for different ways to capture it.  This is what it looked like early this morning. I have never seen the tide and wave action bring the water this high around the rock.

Between Storms

At long last we got some rain last night with more to come on Friday and Saturday.  This morning I wanted to see what the ocean looked like. Had to wade to this outcropping to get the angle I wanted.  Tried different things but long exposure worked the best.  This was taken with a ND filter at 12sec.
