Yesterday, in anticipation of predicted high winter swell, I went in search of monumental waves. I visited three different beaches—each one enveloped in cloudy, sultry skies—and captured fleeting glimpses of waves breaking with tremendous force.
Here are a few snapshots.
|Early morning at Pismo Beach: beautiful satin swell.|
|Early afternoon: Cayucos State Beach. With Morro Rock in the distance, what an awe-inspiring view.|
Late afternoon: I headed to Morro Bay. People came out in droves to watch the surf break behind Morro Rock.
