High Seas, Big Moment

Today my spirit was buoyed by a large ocean at high tide.  The pier was closed as huge surf pounded the coast.  Our local KPIX TV camera crew was on hand, and got wet as wave after wave breached the sea wall.  They interviewed me with my wet camera in hand.  You can see the video here.

About the wet camera.  I got a new Lumix camera that  has a “Worry-free splash proof / dustproof” body.  Guess I’ll find out about the splash.  A few year back I lost a Nikon D200 when large surf caught me by surprise and buried me and the camera with one big blast.

Today a man in full rain gear held the sea wall guard rail tight.  I caught a shot of one large wave completely cover him up.  Then I ran, but not fast enough.
