The parking lot at Blowing Rocks is locked until 9AM….a total inconvenience for those hoping to catch sunrise. The only way to get there before sunup is to park about a mile south and trek up the beach. I barely got there in time to capture a few quick shots before the lighting was to harsh. Looks like I am getting up alot earlier next time!
A flick buddy of mine made the shoot all the way from Miami. Claudia (aka Fraggle Red) was there alot earlier and captured some great shots. Her link is as follows:
Here is a bit about the park from their website:
Blowing Rocks Preserve is a magnificent barrier island sanctuary located on Jupiter Island, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon. Blowing Rocks protects a variety of natural habitats, including beach dune, coastal strand, mangrove wetlands, tropical hammock and oak hammock.
Its rocky Anastasia limestone shoreline is the largest on the Atlantic coast. During extreme high tides and after winter storms, seas break against the rocks and force plumes of saltwater up to 50 feet skyward, an impressive sight for which the preserve was named.
Wonderful work – I love the spray of water in the foreground. I gather this is from the same outing as the previous image?
Yes it is…and thanks!
Great shot, Mike! Love the splash. I couldn’t sleep, so I thought I might as well get up and drive up to Jupiter early. 😉
Fantastic shot and great timing.
