I have always liked the way the water moves through these rocks, so I waited for the atmosphere to be right before making this photograph.  Sometime I will wait for a year or more before conditions are right.  Finally, the fog lifted just enough to let in some color at first light at Lover's Point near Monterey and Pacific Grove.  The low angle of light also shows the color and texture of the rock at its best.  I liked the contrast of the sharp lines of surging water against the softness of the glowing fog.  I had to study the ebb and flow for quite some time in order to figure out how best to time the waves.  Rarely did all this action happen all at 
once.
