Arch Rock Cove

A couple of weeks ago I spent a little time along the bluff at Arch Rock Cove here on Sea Ranch.  These rock towers, once a part of the coastline here in the distant past, have always captivated me.  I shot this image from a fairly direct front-on angle which presents these towers essentially stacked up one behind the other.  Even though this is a long exposure (15 sec) you can still make out several cormorants on the outer rock towers.   I’m blessed to live within walking distance to this scenic spot.   These sentinels are massive, and have stood the test of time, remaining as a small remnant of the land mass that once extended out from the present-day coastline.   It’s also a reminder that nothing remains static along the coast; the forces of nature are constantly at work shaping and reshaping our coastline over time.

Equipment: Nikon D810: Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 lens; B&W 10-stop ND filter; Oben Tripod
