Bali Breakwater — Comox Valley Photographer

I took this shot just as the sun was starting to set. As the ocean waves rolled in, large waves would explode upward when they hit the breakwater. These water jets were almost 20 feet high and they would rocket upwards with the sound of a deep whoomf followed by the spray falling onto the breakwater like heavy rain. The moment was extremely dynamic. I hope you catch a sense of the action. Bye for now. Gordon Ross
