Pfeiffer Beach Sand Stream

One of the cool things about Pfeiffer beach is the purple sand. Apparently this comes from manganese garnet crystals that gets washed in from the nearby hills. Anyway, I wish I could have shot more of these but my cable release got wet (again) and caused my MkII to stop functioning as long as it was attached. So I had to shoot using the timer which is awkward at best. If anyone knows of a fix for the wet cable release problem let me know.
