In the Surf at the Oceanside Pier

In this picture of the ocean I was knee high in the water as it was racing by about two inches below my camera. I was doing some long exposure HDR beach photography and was on my last shot of the three shot sequence when a wave came in. Instead of picking up my tripod and running away I just braced for impact. It was a bit sketchy but I'm glad I did it. The other photographers there probably thought I was insane.

It's actually crazy when walking in knee to even ankle high water the sea life that swims up with the waves. I stepped on something that squirmed when walking back from this shot. Glad I did not get stung by a sting ray.
