California - Monterey, Point Lobos - patricksmithphotography

Point Lobos, at the north end of Big Sur just south of Carmel, California could keep a photographer busy for months or even years. It is a peninsula that has been sculptured by large Pacific waves over millions of years and the results are stunning. This is one of the western-most points of rock and is probably 50 feet tall at high tide.  Sometimes waves wash over the entire rock.  The most interesting motion was occurring just as the waves curl around the rock.  I painted long lines (but not too long) with a 0.6 second exposure.
