This location gets a lot of love when the king tides are happening during the fall and winter months on the PNW coast. It was just me and a few dozen other photographers seeking to capture the big waves that day. Usually the skies are just pure gray, but we got lucky with a bit of sunshine during the middle of the day, in between driving rain, hail, and wind.

Wonderful shot. When I saw this week’s challenge, I was hoping to see a photo from this location. I really like the action of the water with the shutter speed you chose and the blue sunny sky is a surprising additional element
I agree it is an amazing photo. The comp is perfect.
WOW! That is one powerful wave!! I love the two complementary curves of the water.
Great shot. I like the line of foam leading in from the right and then rising to the top of the wave.
Beautiful and powerful, this image really showcases the power of the ocean! You caught the wave at just the right time and I love the shape of it.
You captured the power of the water beautifully. I like how the arcs in the water are complimented by the shapes in the cliff.
Love that wave Patrick! I’ve only chased big waves in Oregon; I’ll have to visit this spot.
Very nice. The power and shape of the wave is really great. Nice exposure with whites where they should be
Well done! You got the magic “swirl” just perfectly. Nice photo!
