The rock ledges here were crazy. So many shapes and types. I loved how the tide moved through them. Speaking of the tide, it was coming in fast; the route back would be blocked soon. But the sky kept changing colors and moods. It was impossible to tear away from these exquisite tide-pools.
Yikes! The tide rose more than I expected while doing these last long exposures; hopping from rock to rock I made for the higher ledge and ladder to safety. A big wave caught me, but I kept the camera gear above it. Soaked from mid-thigh down, I reached the ledge and ladder. Stacey was waiting for me. I looked back at the disappearing beach beneath the cliffs -- Wait a minute --Can you hold really still for 15 seconds...?
