Shot at the last moment. I edited another shot but couldn't get it to submit as it was deemed too large .. aw well, this is all in fun ... this may not look like a cave but it is quite deep and I nearly lost my footing and went down camera and all! Good luck to everyone!


Post challenge - a lovely surprise to be on the front page ... and for the most part I found wisdom in the comments and will take them to heart ... bless you all ... MaggieMac

Nice Shot! Natural Bridges/Santa Cruz? Wonderful capturing the sailboat in the frame!

does not capture the tunnel, cool shot of pelicans though, a little blurry

Nice composition with the sailboat framed by the cave.
I would have tried either a shorter exposure (if light permitted)
to freeze the waves, or a longer exposure to have them washed out more.

Nice of you to hire the guy with the sailboat to anchor there! LOL!!! I dunno if that was luck, or waiting for hours for a boat to sail by, but this is really something special.......9

Very nice framing, I like how the waves are playing in the arch at the same time. I am not sure where you focus is, but my eye is telling me that I want the rock and pelicans in better focus.

maybe a crop just with the black frame of the tunnel and the boat on the end would have been great!

How lucky were you to get that boat so wonderfully framed.

I know it's a tough one but it might have been better to crop the sky and the pelicans - good luck
