I wanted to try and capture something different of this area, other than the Skillion. I had viewed this scene a few times and on the rare occasion a photograph of it. I could not resist the composition here and have actually been searching further south for something similar for many years with only some luck. The beauty of this spot is the 'U' shaped rock formation in front of me. Standing where I was, allowed me to capture as much of the rock shelf and breaking waves as possible, to portray the power and drama of this location.
I had been photographing for some time here and when the sun rose the scene completely changed in look and feel, the powerful contrasting light revealing every detail. As the waves crashed onto the rock shelf, my aim was to capture the remaining water draining back into the ocean.
