Large breakers washed over this 15-foot tall cliff on the edge of La Jolla's north shore near The Cove. I waited for the right wave in order to show the forces at work that carved the unusual rock formations in the area. Only during high tide at sunset is this possible because this area is dry at low tide.  A low warm light allowed just enough contrast and exposure time to show the water eroding the sandstone.
