Lovely dynamic landscape composition with the angled rocks,watersplash and the palms in the BG. Deffinately see the rule of thirds in play here. Wish the BG was more sharp.

a great shot.
You can clearly see the where the sea has worn-down the rocks.
Sharp with excellent timing to capture the spray.

Lovely image, a bit like a painting and interesting notes.
Natural and wild looking with great detail and colour, beautiful.

it's nice to see the effect of the shifting of the Earth in your part of world. So often it's the coastal areas which show us the best possible view of the results of this staggering process. Your notes are very interesting.
Great timing on the crashing waves (it's not easy is it??), which has helped show the seperate masses of rock and added depth to the shot.

You really have illustrated a global phenomemnon, even here our beaches are getting smaller and the sea is eating into huge natural habitats, washing away shoreline villages and creating havoc. The rising sea waters have flooded cultivable land and converted them into acres of saline fields. maybe these are the effects of 'global warming'. I like your POV here to portray the scene. Very nicely composed too. Kudos.
Let me reword a bit...as you have said it..'Twas a long time ago for humans, but only a drop for geology. Your notes are interesting and complete. Let me add this because I have so many family in the present subduction zone. Interesting that there is one now and one so long ago, so near...
An excellent study in the geology of tectonics..and may I add that NA and Pacific Plates are no longer subducting in this area. They have been strike slip fault for the last 100 million years. If you go further up north to Tomales Bay, north of the Gate, the strike slip continues but out 11 miles in the ocean. The subduction zone which is presently active (Cascadian) starts near the Mendocino triple Junction of NA, Pacific and locked Gorda Plate, as well as the San Juan DeFuca...
Great stuff tho..and nice pictures..I have owned an earthquake study group for going on 16 years now, which includes a few geologists and seismologists.:-) I am sure they would appreciate seeing this picture with your notes..!!!!

This is a nice photo as well as an educational one. I'm glad you got the timing just right for the splash. Including the palm trees really gives this a sense of place. I like the strong diagonals along with the vertical palms.

Good captured of the coast with details on the rocks with perfect texture and pattern
Good pov with beautiful colour and detail as a whole!
well composed and well seen
A very good scene with a nice foreground (a strangely shaped rock!!) and the action centre..and a lovely background..perhaps the background could do with a little more focus or a little less..either way a great pic

Hi Silke. Excellent to see and read about this setting today. It is always facinating to read the rocks as you have done here. Hope to see some more of this type. TFS. Murray

Excellent view of the rugged coastline. water is the most powerful source of energy on the planet. Great color and POV. Very well done.

I think you've captured the action very well..This is from a native Californian, born and raised :)
Very well done!

A nice image of the rocks and of the waves rushing them, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.

That's a very interesting and impressive picture. You show the interference of water and rocks so well. We can feel the strength of natural forces. Also did you choose your point of view excellentely.

buen trabajo amiga y nota.
WOW!! I love how the water just POPS out at you in this shot! Really just glows! I have a few folks that I would like to smash against rocks...how about you??

I like how the DOF, focal length and you distance compacted the scenery. It really add to the feeling as if you were really close to the break and if it was very big. I am also impressed about the fact that you got the foam perfectly sharp and frozen in mid air. It shows excellent control. I really love the action in this photo.
