California was recently hit by one of the fiercest storms in years so Linda and I packed our bags and headed for the coast in the hope of catching some “after-the-storm” conditions.
It rained non-stop in the couple of hours it took us to get to Carmel By The Sea, which is just below Monterey on the California Coast and had a close call on the road when traffic came to a halt, but got there safe and in one piece.
After a wonderful coffee at a favorite coffee shop in Aptos we got to the Natural Bridges State Park in Santa Cruz where we found what we came for. Awesome waves and an amazingly “angry sky”. Waves crashing into the rocks completed the scene. Despite the color in the sky and it being somewhat “dark”, this shot was taken around 2pm, a time where one would expect it to be clear and sunny.
