Hawaiian Seascape: Soft water and black rock

This time of year the northern coast of Kaua’i receives the heavy swells that hit the shoreline unchecked from the open water of the Pacific.  I was waiting for the sun to rise and the low light of dawn allowed me to use a shutter speed of four seconds.  This long exposure blurred the rows of spiky waves softening them into a supporting role, allowing this dramatic chunk of rock standing apart from the shore to be the dominant subject in the image.
