In early December the second in a series of very powerful storms struck the northern coast of San Francisco. The near hurricane force winds whipped up the sea along the coast and the opportunity to photograph it was just to hard to resist.
I was in town that week for training, leaving only the evening hours to photography the fury of the Pacific ocean. There was enough ambient light from Cliff Palace on the short and from a near full moon on the first night to allow me to take these wonderful images. T
he overhangs of Cliff Palace itself proved to be most useful. When the wind driven rain was at it worst it provided a drier sanctuary for my camera (and me) to shoot the scene.
