Another interesting feature at Botany Bay, at the end of the road near Port Renfrew, on the rugged outer (west) coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. A massive natural breakwater curves out into the Pacific Ocean and protects the small sandy beach from being totally eroded by winter storms. At one place, about half way out the length, there is a large hollow in the crown of the rocks. The incoming ocean swells crash into the outer face of the rocks and the upsurge of water gradually fills the hollow until one final swell causes it to overflow. The result is this waterfall, which causes the hollow to empty.
Then the sequence starts all over again, but since it depends upon the size and height of the outer surf, the waterfall varies in volume and frequency. Sometimes it can be quite small, other times, it looks like this image.
I took about 50 shots over a period of about one hour, and no two are the same.
