I think the best place to shoot splashes is at Pebble Beach (not the one down by Carmel) -- on the San Mateo coastline, south of San Francisco, just north of Bean Hollow Beach.   Look around that area and you will find the same type of eroded sandstone as they have 200 miles to the north at Salt Point.

Here's two from Salt Point:

Hi everybody --

And hi Melinda -- those rocks can also be found at Point Lobos, between Carmel and Big Sur... It's actually one of my favorite places, but I don't get there very often... Anyway, the famous photographer Edward Weston used to photograph the fantastic shapes and textures of those highly eroded sandstone rocks...

What fantastic shapes in the sandstone! Like some sort of fantasy landscape. The bottom one looks like it should be moving in waves.

Thanks for sharing these! I can see why it would be one of your favourite places.

I love the first picture. I never seem to catch those images.

I also like the first rock picture. It's always amazing what mother nature can do.
