Photographer's Note

With morning fog rolling in from the sea, the harsh enviroment of this shoreline creates such rugged windswept trees. Many of the fir and hemlocks along the coast their tops removed from the severe wind and weather.
It took me some time to trek out to this vantage spot to catch this photo. The shoreline rocks are extremely sharp and even though I had some measure of confidence in my North Face hiking shoes, I learnt quickly that no rock surface is to be trusted, especially if wet from the sea, and draped over with seaweed. But with my tripod as a support stick and camera draped over my shoulder I managed to find an almost level rock to stand on.
This swelling wave brings in kelp seaweed which has lots its sea foothold. The wave in this frame does not fit into the thirds rule, but because of its power I allowed it to fill a good portion of the lower frame. In a way everything living along the coast is effected by the power of the sea. Enjoy!
