Very surreal; the sea turned into a white mist and that contrasts very well with the black rocks. Bad news about the closure of those state parks....

@Hans ter Horst: Thank you for your kind words, my friend! Yes, a very bad news for people who love nature. I still can't believe and feel so sad ..

Amazing effect here - a sea of light seems to wash upon the shore.

The bright white misty middle creates an illusion, as though we are viewing two totally separated scenes. Hope plenty of (American) people can do something to help with the parks situation, I'd sure be just as activated if it were happening here.

This is wonderful! I love the foreground rock, all shiny and slippery leading me into the scene! And thanks for the link to the State Park site....I sent my letter!
