Thank you very much! This is about 10 miles north of Santa Cruz, CA... There are so many wonderful beaches along the coast in this area. I ha to take quite a few images to get the one(s) I wanted, the sand is constantly shifting and messing up the images. Almost all of my longer exposures had movement in them, part of it is because I get as close to the water as I can and when a big waves comes up, it messes up my stability, not to even mention how soaked I got this whole weekend!!
You're welcome. Yeah oceans are absolute wonderful. I live about 5 mins away from north sea and I go there often. Specially when it's windy or stormy or during a thunder-storm. It's amazing to see the power of nature and to feel it. I remember the pacific ocean from my vacation in california. It was a real nice view. Yes. You are right about "It draws you to it".
