Went to the beach yesterday afternoon and took a few shots. Not many features at this beach except one piece of driftwood. Next time I want to try a polarizer and see if it makes a difference.

Nice pictures tcook. It's sometimes hard to get the correct exposure of waves but you did it perfectly.

Very nice

the polarizer, in this situation, would only make the sky a bit darker and slow down shutter 2 or 3 stops.
I hope you had a UV to protect the FZ50 lens from micro water/salt particles which can get far from the point where waves crash. Salt on the lens can be a bad trouble.

I d liked that trunk in pict #2 too.

Thanks everyone for looking and the comments. It was a windy day so it was pretty rough.
No surfers Jim but they do surf about 20 miles north of here at the entrance to Humboldt Bay. Many places, such as here, have a very dangerous undertow and every year some unsuspecting person is swept off the beach by a rogue wave and drowned. It happened north of here just last week to a young lady and a child. The child was swept away and the young lady tried to rescue the child and both were drowned.
Narmer, you are right, I would like to see the trunk in that photo also. The problem is, I always think about when I am home and it's to late.
