Lost Coast... Almost a Lost Cause
19-SEP-2008 Sandi Whitteker

Lost Coast... Almost a Lost Cause

Lost Coast, California

Per someone's advice, I made the trek down to the Lost Coast, only to find some beautiful rocky
coastline, but almost no beach access. It's the lost coast for a reason... mostly private ranches.
Mostly cows enjoying the beautiful views here! So... not much to show for the time and effort.
Did like this pretty piece of redwood in the surf though. Too big to fit in my car!

Third Place, 106th Show and Tell Conest, "Motion"

Adding to the chorus here, Wow! Great shot on many levels.

This is quite a surreal image. The water is like a halo surrounding this mysterious object.

Fantastique composition avec l'eau filée, c'est un superbe travail.

Very beautiful and the colors well matches for "Lost Coast". I love soft angle wing image of wave like this! V!

Very cool shot -- nice contrast between the blurred water and the very sharp rock.

Nice capture Sandi! Voted!
Patrick Allender04-Dec-2008 03:02
Very cool shot. I really like those 2 little rocks also. It looks like the rocks and the driftwood are in motion skimming over the water.
Bogdan Szadowski21-Oct-2008 19:59
Incredible shot. Great compo. V
Steve Ainsworth21-Oct-2008 16:59
Love the dynamic, whispy effect of the long exposure and the soft tones--almost looks like a B&W from the thumbnail.
Ghislaine et Réal Boulet19-Oct-2008 03:43

This one played tricks on my eyes at first. I thought it was sitting in a wind blown sand pit... Wow! great exposure to capture this, Sandi!

Wonderful shot!

Sandi, Sandi, Sandi -- now look what you've gone and done...created another great capture. The compo is really excellent but the best part, IMHO, is the lower right side of this image...the longer exposure, just enough, to create such a great sense of motion and those two little rocks make the shot. The drift wood is cool but the accent of those little rocks really sets this shot apart. Kudo's!!
globalgadabout22-Sep-2008 15:51
it did fit very well in your lens though...great dynamic image...V
