The incoming waves throw off quite a bit of spray when breaking, thanks to that offshore wind. Using the 70-200 f/2.8 lens, at 170 mm, I got some great depth to the image, as the lighthouse is actually a couple of miles from this beach. Rogue waves can hit at any time and anywhere, and sweep you out.
