Crash [Explored]

I was at the beach underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and this rock formation caught my eye. I wanted to get a semi long exposure of the waves. Most of the waves gently made it over the little valley on the rock for the 20 minutes or so that I was at this spot. Just as I was leaving though this wave came crashing through. This is just the first portion, it actually struck me and soaked most of my clothes. If it hadn't been for the fact that I had my camera strap around my neck the tripod might have tipped too. Just as the exposure was ending the wave moved it (that's why there is some blurring in the rock.) Very fortunate situation.

 

Once again I have chosen to go with the black and white processing. Maybe I'm just in one of those moods....
