Very nicely captured, Jack. Wonderful quote too!

Lovely. I really like your use of a fast shutter here. It beautifully emphasizes the power of the wave.

Nicely captured moment :)
J'adore la mer en furie quand les vagues se déchaînent et qu'elles viennent s'écraser sur les rochers. Beau shot !
25 Mar 2009 6:35am
I do like this kind of picture where we can see the strength of the ocean.... (I'm listening to a radio of Dublin that fits perfectly with your picture).

25 Mar 2009 8:23am

A wave breaks and cogne soul, Just now! and it is a beautiful deep color image!!

25 Mar 2009 10:46am
@Judy: Telephoto lens; not even close!
superb composition light and work ! :-))
25 Mar 2009 11:14am
At the heart of the wave. In the droplets explode into the light and the red rocks.It' s beautiful and so wild, thank you John.
25 Mar 2009 11:37am
I can hear the pounding of the surf! well done!
25 Mar 2009 12:21pm
Zowie, that pops!
25 Mar 2009 12:51pm
aminus3 dropped my link thingie ... again. sorry.
25 Mar 2009 12:55pm
@MontereyJohn: I had the same problem last night.
the water color, and the contrast between spray, water, and rock is wonderful.....a great capture...
25 Mar 2009 1:13pm
an amazing shot! I can sense the power of the wave.
25 Mar 2009 1:35pm
@Donna: Thanks, Donna. The sea crashing on the rocks tends to put things in perspective.
wow ! I love your shot Jack... it's magnificient
25 Mar 2009 1:44pm
oops sorry ! I want to write : magnificent !
25 Mar 2009 1:45pm
@Peggy M.: You got that on right by me the first time, Peggy; thanks for your kind words.
that's kind of mood and landscape misses me too much
25 Mar 2009 2:20pm
This shot reminds me of back home in West Wales,a great capture and very sharp !!
25 Mar 2009 2:41pm
I love the color of the water in contrast with the rocks - great capture!
25 Mar 2009 2:48pm
A wonderful capture of the crashing sea among the rugged shoreline rocks. A very effective image.
25 Mar 2009 2:55pm
oooh, telephoto shots are cheating! ya gotta get right in there and risk the splashdown... course, everything gets wet and some things don't work after they get wet.. seriously, this is beautifully shot with crisp clear color.
25 Mar 2009 2:57pm
This is such a wonderful photograph, Jack. The motion of the water, the colouration and composition, all utterly superb
25 Mar 2009 3:02pm
Jack, this is one powerful image. I'd love to be standing there, looking at this with my own eyes and hearing the sound of the surf breaking against those rocks.
25 Mar 2009 3:21pm
@Viewfinder: It was an incredible morning. The weather that day was spectacular; it's always a crap shoot along the Oregon Coast.
the rocks looks so cool... =)
25 Mar 2009 3:33pm
@Ben: The rocks along the West Coast are incredible; I could stand there for hours (and actually have).
What a great catch and a fantastic blue. Amazing how water has turned from beer to Margarita. ;-)
25 Mar 2009 3:48pm
@Ajay: It looks like a party drink to me, Ajay; some Hawaiian concoction!
Ah... this is a wonderful shot, clean, fresh and action.
(we both have salt and rocks today)
25 Mar 2009 3:56pm
@observing: Terrific, isn't it?
I like this! The spray frozen, the contrast with the rocks, and the blue water are all perfect.
25 Mar 2009 3:59pm
Perfect title. I imagine it would be pretty relaxing to sit here and listen to these crashes.
25 Mar 2009 4:39pm
@dogilicious: Absolutely; sometimes you just need to put your camera down and take it in.
quelle pureté !
25 Mar 2009 4:44pm
Stop the action. best...jerry
25 Mar 2009 4:55pm
@ordinaryimages: At the time, Jerry, I didn't realize what the shutter speed was; I had simply set the camera to the lens's optimal aperture. (I am not nearly as careful as I should be with the glut of settings.)
I have no words for this, excellant timing.. apt exposure

25 Mar 2009 5:17pm
arrétée dans son élan...
25 Mar 2009 5:24pm
That's rocksss mate, nice splash ;-)
25 Mar 2009 5:26pm
Great timing, I love the crash of the waves against the rocks.
Beautiful light and quote.
I remind myself daily, maybe not 3 times but at least once.
25 Mar 2009 5:45pm
@Barbara: If we all did it once a day, Barb, I think that it would change not only our own lives but the world as well. It is so easy to lose focus as to what truly matters. As one who is compulsive-obsessive (these days it's with photography), this quote was a big time message for myself.
Hiper realistic. Great shot!!
25 Mar 2009 7:05pm
Great fast action shot here Jack.... caught that wave perfectly, and the water pooling in the rocks is perfect!!! Great catch!!
25 Mar 2009 7:12pm
nicely shot here; would love to see this with a slower shutter speed, too...
25 Mar 2009 7:22pm
@paulski: Totally different effect and feel, as you know.
great and lovely shot
25 Mar 2009 8:22pm

25 Mar 2009 9:10pm
Great timing. Caught it at it's peak. I'm waiting for it to collapse and splash. Well captured.
25 Mar 2009 9:20pm
Wonderful representation of our mightly ocean. Nice job. Love the quote, too.
25 Mar 2009 10:22pm
Fantastic capture of that wave! I love the color of the water! Beautiful!
25 Mar 2009 10:54pm
The violence of nature is really well captured in this one!
25 Mar 2009 11:34pm
Superb capture, love the timing catching the spray at its peak
Another great saying,
26 Mar 2009 1:41am
Perfect timing, light, color, everything! Thanks for the quote, too- I really don't ask myself that very often... I need to :)

So much power in this shot! The colours are so deep and rich...wonderful.

Fabulous capture! Nice detail and clarity
26 Mar 2009 5:02am
Very beautiful wave and beautiful colors

Beautiful, Jack. Love the splash of water. Such power in the ocean.
