Waves crashing at the base of the Point Bonita lighthouse at the entrance to San Francisco Bay. Just playing with my camera on a beautiful January day, watching set after set of monster waves crash into the rocks at the base of the lighthouse. Working fast to freeze the drops, a change of pace from my normal inclination to blur everything.

This is about a 50% crop off the original, edits mostly in LR4 with a little Topaz Adjust on top. Hoping this squeaks above 6, but won't be surprised if it ends up a lot lower than that.
