This was one of the first photos I took with my 20D, only getting to post it now. What do you think?

I like it, those are pretty impressive breakers you've got there, I'd say the shutter speed is about right to capture the drama of the waves too

Thanks John. speaking of impressive breakers, it was actually quite small that day(about 3 foot), about two weeks ago after the storm it was about 12 foot. I really wished I had my camera that day.

If they were 12 foot I wouldn't want to standing in that spot :!:

I don't know what your coastline is like, but around here we loose several people a year because they don't respect the power of the sea and get too close to the breakers: when the seas up then once you're swept off the rocks around here there really is no way back. We've had a couple of really sad cases recently where parents have dived in to try and save one of their kids, and none of them survived. If you live around here you know to respect the sea, but the tourists don't always get the message, sometimes no matter how many times their told that what they're doing is unsafe.

Still, looking on the bright side for a moment, at least we don't have to contend with sharks as well like you guys do :-)

John.

You right about the sharks, EL has one of the highest fatal shark attack rates in the world. About 4 years ago someone was attacked at this very spot. The photo is a bit decieving John, I actually took it from the road and even if the waves were 30 foot, they wouldn't make it near me. Those rocks actually make a really effectice barrier.
