A continuation of the series.  The rock layers which record the geologic history of Montana De Oro State Park can be read like books in an ancient library. They are angled at 45 degrees and are as slippery as ice.  It is difficult to get this close to the surf but this is where the best views are.  I waited for a wave to move in between the rocks to show them as being separate.  Otherwise they looked like one rock.  I also waited for the very last light to strike the rock layers at the lowest angle possible.
