I got wet taking this one ........

Definitely Large

I had to climb in around a beautiful rockpool in the midst of this wild coastline to get this one ... it seemed out of place

I didn`t get down here when the seas were big as the spray was blowing up the cliffs 100 meters behind this spot and 100 meters above

I saw a couple of photographers down here that evening but they wouldn`t have got the caps off thier lenses

The waves were crashing over the top of these massive rocks

There was a deep low off the coast for a couple of days

This is more typical of my seascapes up close to the action

BTW ... the camera didn`t get a drop but legs got it three times so I thought I would leave while I was in front on the scoreboard

It looks a little more dramatic due to the 1/3 sec exposure .... makes the water look like its moving more than it is

They were very small waves ... about 1 foot

A different story the next day with 5 meter waves crashing through here
