Ripples in the sand and the sky present a vast constract, but at the same time, many similarities.

The raging river near the ocean provides a vast constrast from smooth crashing waves to violent moving currents, but both produce a beautiful image.

The tide was very low this day, opening up a vast amount of space and an ocean that looks quite far away.

Sunsets provide beauty when it reflects off the water on the ground, one of my favorite things about the beach.

Going on the beach before sunset offers a view of shadows and colors that we normally do not see during the day.

Subtle tracks left by a truck in the sand, they look very deep with the sun going down.

This beach offers a very unique view of the mountains in the background, which as you can see, many people like to just come to this park and enjoy the views.

Beach and birds

High tide and strong winds can create very unique landscapes, including a slanted beach.

I was lucky to catch this bird flyng by at just the right time, and it was really fighting the strong winds.

These long beaked birds are always searching for their next meal in the sand, which are tiny crabs that breathe through bubbles in the sand.

The ocean was angry this day, causing waves to break at the edge, becoming very foamy and sandy.

Sneaker wave

The remnants of Hurricane Iselle were showing even weeks after the storm ended with strong violent waves called “sneaker waves”. These waves have incredible force behind them forcing them to break at a high peak.

The wind was calm on this day, but the waves were absolutely violent, often turning foamy before hitting land.

Despite the illusion, these waves were easily 6 to 7 feet high.

Witnessing the shoreline being taken over is quite a sight to see. At a moments notice there could be a wave with such large force it reaches the dunes, and at times these waves were breaking right at the hill causing a dramatic splash effect.
