This is a part of Abalone Cove in Rancho Palos Verdes that I could never get to before. The water was too deep and the current way too strong. I got there early tonight and the tide was low so I took a chance and jumped in. Camera and tripod overhead, I made it to the rocks that I've been admiring for so long. I took about 200 images and when i looked back at the beach and noticed the tide came in. It's now swelling to about 20' deep and I'm scared. I thought I would be sleeping out there. Luckily a huge wave came, and when it retreated back to the sea I saw the bottom. I ran through 2' of water screaming like a school girl for 15 yards and made it to he beach with the next monster wave at my heels. That was cool.
HDR Image - except the water, that's all from the -2 file, that's why it's so noisy. I need the -2 because It's the only exposure fast enough to catch the still water. The problem is that it was totally black so I had to bring up the exposure and fill-light to be able to see it. Hence the noise that you can see when you look at it closely. So please don't look closely.
