After shooting the early morning light, I spent some time shooting in the overcast conditions and exploring some areas of my favorite stretch of coast. The tide was going out, and the swell was pretty mellow.
I still had to time the sets and scramble, but I was able to get up onto the bigger of my two pet rocks. I was somewhat surpised to see so many tide pools filled with life considering how slammed these rocks get. But then again, intertidal animals are used to getting slammed, and therefore are very unique.
I wanted this image to simply focus on the big and small of Hole In The Wall beach. The prominent rock in the distance combined with some living animals making their home here. A little different from the usual "rock, sea, sky" shots, but I like it enough to post.
