While out at Point Reyes this weekend, I was seeing if I could do some long exposure stuff, when a sudden wave surge happened.
I saw a set of two huge waves breaking out about one hundred yards or so from me. I have grown up on the beaches of California, so when I saw this I immediately knew that though I was on a high spot around four feet above the sandy floor, that this tidal surge was going to make it up to where I was.
I also knew I was not going to make it to higher ground in time so I made sure my footing was sure and my tripod as well. I shot this one picture as the waves overtook me and then grabbed my camera and proceeded to hold it up over my head as the water went up over my knees.
Quite the thrilling experience… I hope to never repeat it!
