Turbulence in Smuggler’s Cove

Smuggler's Cove after a Storm

It was late in the afternoon and I was hiking along the bluff trail near Smuggler’s Cove.  A storm had passed a day or two earlier and I could hear the surf in the Cove before I saw it.  Beaches along the Cove are basically inaccessible and the craggy cliffs are a formidable deterrent to anyone attempting to descend below.  I found an interesting vantage point to take this shot of the Cove in all its glory.  It was a bit of a grey day and I enjoy the sharpness and the various grey tones that only B&W can produce.  For me, I feel the energy and power of the ocean as it pushes its way through the Cove.  I also think B&W highlights the sinuous nature of the rocky bluff face.   One can also notice the wind-sculpted Cypress trees along the edge of the bluff.  This is definitely a place to be enjoyed from afar.

    • This was a bit of a challenge because of the light differential across the image. But I’m happy with how it ultimately came out.

      Hope all is well with you and your move…
