The California coastline displays some of the most dynamic and moody seascape scenes - even dangerous. Especially the North California coast. Here, the slightest change in atmosphere can make for a bad outdoor experience if you get caught out in it with all of your equipment. So, that being stated, this can be a unique and rewarding challenge to set-up in.
Although I had planned the entire evening for this location, I was uncertain as to the weather, light, and ocean swell conditions. I must have snapped away two hundred or more exposures to finally have enough to choose from to create “Shores of Titan”. At times, I found myself running for higher ground leaving my camera behind on the tripod as huge surges of seawater filled the surrounding area where I had been standing. Luckily, the camera was secure and higher than the swells. In fact, at the time of my departure from this scene, as it was getting to dark even for long exposures, a huge wave crashed into the cove and rocks that I had been sitting in for hours. That one “rouge” wave would have destroyed all my equipment and certainly might have harmed me too!
