It's all in the timing folks, all in the timing!

I think I know someone in La Selva Beach who might recognize this scene.

Hi John! I love the high tide here! Makes for a great foreground without so many big rocks competing for attention with the light! Is that this year? I haven't been there yet, but when we have a few clear days I'll head down! Excellent job! Nice that no matter how many times we go there, there's always something new going on!

interesting shot. I do think it would improve even more if you crop it, so you can't see the horizon (so that it's a real hole in the wall ;) ).

Nice job on catching the sunbeam.
