Adamant. Indomitable. This rock stands, no matter how the surf pounds. It stands on the Pacific side of Tomales Point in Point Reyes National Seashore.

My thought in making this image was to use a long time exposure to turn the surf crashing on the rock soft, white, and wispy, while rendering the rock itself solid and delineated. I used two exposures, one at ten seconds for the rock and one at twenty seconds for the water, and sandwiched the exposures together in Photoshop as layers.

[170mm, 255mm in 35mm equivalent terms, 10 seconds and 20 seconds, both exposures at f/18 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
