Bear - according to this page
Tidal Chart
- if I am reading it right lol - high tide should be at 7:53 PM and this shot was taken around 7:19 PM.

I did have to look it up because I was not 100% sure lol. But what I do remember is that for a bit, my son was able to sit and play there and then the water kept creeping up and splashing over the mini sand dunes.

One of my top two, maybe my favorite. I just love the look of this beach, the low light, the silhouetted activity, the filmy light. Voted earlier.

This shot has sooooo much atmosphere, all the blown out bits, blah blah who cares, photography rules should be and can be broken and still attain a wonderful shot like you have, and you should also be very proud of, and for that you get my only Verineat Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpgfor the challenge and a 10.

I love this shot! I could look at it for hours. Sharing top spot with one other. 10 and fave.

now that is some beach erosion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting scene with the sand 'cliff.' I'd prefer more focus on either the fashion in which the sand has eroded or the individuals in the shot. As is, it seems a bit split between the two.

Excellent shot. I like the misty look.

Love this in buckets.

This is a very cool picture and I'm about to give it a 7, but surely that's a LOW tide, not a HIGH one? Look at all that exposed beach to the right...
