High Surf, Oregon Coast

New Year trip to the coast for the weekend brought full moon and storms. The result is extra high tides and rough seas. It was very interesting to watch the flow and crashing of the waves on the rocks. These high waves are on the rocks of the small coastal town of Yahats. There were quite a few of us just watching Mother Nature do her thing. It was extra nice to have a little sun break to get some dramatic lighting, thus negating all other high crashing wave shots up until then. Very nice, more to come in the next few days.

The perfect wave shot is something to behold, but it normally takes ages to get it. Going back I love the shot of the sun through the trees.

That is an amazing shot. As much as I try I've yet to get a shot that captures the ocean this well.
