Sunrise Wet Zone

Sunrise Wet Zone

The package contains 12 photos of "the wet zone" on a wide, wild, and beautiful beach. The area I call the "wet zone" is the area that stays wet while the waves go back and forth. There's probably a different official name. Anyhow, this beach is nearly flat and the wet zone is wide and long. That texturing, the little dark marks? Those are where clams are hiding under the sand.
This beach faces the Pacific Ocean and there is the constant roar of the waves. Further along the coast are shipwrecks. Oh, it looks like a nice calm beach, but it gets wild here. The trees are bent, the houses battered. Access trails to the beach tend to have flags on them: green for moderately safe, yellow for extreme caution, or red for very dangerous.
The locals drive on the beach by the hundreds (yes, the sand is hard enough for traffic), and then park their beatup pick-up trucks above the high tide marks and then wade on into the wet zone to dig clams. They do this in the very early morning in the springtime. (I saw this in late March.)
Here we have the sunrise. This is the Pacific Ocean, and I'm facing west in the photos, so sun is rising BEHIND me. Photos to the east would have had houses in them, so none of the sun actually rising. That dot in the sky is the moon, going for moon set.
How far can we see along the beach? Maybe ten miles. Each way. It's about a mile from the base of the cliff to the waves, and that's the narrow direction. People are usually little dots, or little tiny stick-figures, in the distance.

What could you put here? Vikings? Pirates? Mythical sea creatures coming ashore? Or use it as a backdrop for bathing beauties? And a beach very much like this would have been there when the dinosaurs roamed.

Photos are at 2816x2122 pixels (5 of them, 5.98 megapixels each, 180 dpi), and 3456x2592 pixels (7 of them, 8.96 megapixels each, 72 dpi). I was using two different cameras, which is why the variety of sizes when it was all the same sunrise.
