January 1, 2020 — Sonoma County coast
The clouds parted. The sky drama left us.
But the sea drama came to take its place. Weather alerts. High surf warnings. Rip currents. Watch out for sneaker waves. I saw a complete idiot take his cocker spaniel onto the beach, only to run back seconds later. He was bucking for a Darwin Award.
I found a low, but safe, vantage point. Hundreds of frames were shot. This is one of them. This wave is one of the moderate ones. About twelve to fourteen feet.
