Where the Santa Monica mountains meet the sea, Pt. Mugu stands facing west to the open ocean. The extreme north-western edge of the Santa Monica mountain range, full of fault lines, remnants of volcanos, fossils and a part of the Transverse mountain range oriented east-west, this area of California begins in Ventura County.
The tides deliver the shore and rocks with sand and take it away so that if one were to visit this beach next week the rocks and the beach would look different except for that one big rock standing in the middle ground on the extreme left. Like life itself, each day brings with it a different view, and a new set of ebb and flow to it.

Nice scene. I like the rocks in the foreground and the shades of the foam of the waves.
Regards and TFS

This is a wonderful seascape.
Details on stones in fg and the sea - excellent.
A very well-composed shot with magnificent colors.
Very well done.

Your coast scene reminds me of my favorite spot in the area - Sycamore Cove. And I note as explained, the constant changing of the rocks and sand.

I chose this example from your recent themed gallery as I particularly like the subtle light and colours you've managed to capture. I don't know what if any PP work you've done on it, but it remains an authentic, naturalistic-looking shot. When nature is this beautiful, we don't need digital enhancement (if we ever do!)
