Once again, I need to thank 21.gif Bear_Music and 21_N.gif BrennanOB for suggesting this area back in August. I took some shots back then but wasn't really happy with the outcome so made it a point to head back there in December.

I only had 1 day free on this trip and unfortunately the weather was really bad that day; high winds and thunder storms throughout the bay area. There was some major flooding in many areas but my friends still agreed to drive me out there. :) Amazingly, the entire drive out there and the drive back home was a constant downpour but for the hour or so that I was there, the sky cleared up enough to shoot.

An outtake from that day: The Brock Schreiber Boathouse is about an 1/8th of mile from the wreck.

LOL - another favorite spot of mine. Yes, it can get really soggy around that area as you noted. Right now, it's pretty dry - ripe for another interpretation.

Again, 1s and 2s for this wonderful photo... what a bunch of loosers!
Conrats on your 2nd place dude. Seems like you became a "front page repeater" for FS :)

Classic Cuttooth long exposure and perfect rules.
Location is one thing, pulling off a shot under pressure of limited opportunity is another.
WD Mark. You nailed it :) 9.

Indeed it is. Now I really have to say a big thanks for suggesting this spot. :)

Here's an outtake that I was on the fence about choosing which to enter:
