This is the outboard end of the Pacifica Pier - located on the Pacific Ocean just a few miles south of San Francisco. The pier extends out over 300 meters (1000 feet) from the sea wall.
This image was taken late on this past Saturday afternoon - shortly before sunset. There were warnings posted along the California coast all weekend for dangerous swells. The forecast was for waves to as high as 8 meters (26 feet).
I used to go to this area every time high surf was forecast - but hadn't been there in years - before this Saturday. The awesome power of nature. I was so glad I went.
