Geo 730: October 28, Day 666: Seal Rock Sea Shore

Looking along the northward extent of the invasive dike(s) at Seal Rock State Park. There's a tombolo developing on the shoreward side of the large stack to the left. The stack blocks much of the incoming wave energy from the open ocean, which means the area behind it becomes a sediment trap. In this case the sediment is course cobbles and boulders; in other it might be sand. The odd light on the salal (which I mentioned a few days ago) in the foreground is the result of my camera flash, which often goes off unwanted and unneeded when I have it in automatic mode. In this case, I like the effect, though.
