A storm brought some rapidly moving waves to La Jolla cove at sunrise. It was a morning of shooting and running!  I wanted to get in close to show the drama of the incoming surf.  The sky lit up quite well and some low warm light made it to the beach.  It took about 10 minutes to get this shot right because the wave cycles were too rapid for me to get the tripod properly set up in between waves, but finally things worked out.  Soon afterwards, the light became too bright and the good light was gone for the day.
