This is one of my most favorite shots. The wave in this picture was huge, I mean extremely big. If you compare it to the rock and land mass it is going to crash into you will get a good idea of its' size. The winds were about 40 mph on this day and I was doing good to stay in position to take this picture. The spray from the waves was being ripped off the wave tops and howling up to the walkway on shore where I snapped this.
I like the fog in the background and the whitecaps all about which are accentuated by the blue water. The rocks, the froth of the previous waves and clapotis adds to the strength of this picture.
