Waves at Carmel Beach

Of course all nature photography is the pursuit of order of patterns in  the chaos of nature, but this photograph is a literal manifestation of  it. After deciding I wanted to capture the motion of the waves and  finding the right shutter speed to do so, I took the photograph for a  dozen different waves hitting the rocks. Each splash pattern is  different but this one was the most visually interesting. In this  exposure, the lines seem to emerge radially from the center, creating  many of parallel lines as opposed to an uninteresting mess.
