    This is another take at Cripps beach in Santa Cruz during the first storm in the winter. This one was taken after the sun just set and I wanted to go down and get up and close in person to those amazing fingers. You could stare at those for a good 5 mins and still say WTF. They are definitely very cool.

    This is a 3 image blend, each one taken with the Lee 2 stop SE ND grad filters. Let me know what you think and thanks for visiting.
