Dateline: Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008: Santa Monica South Tower #22
The Rip Out Front of SMS T-22 sunday afternoon; photo captures an unoccupied riptide churning away.
The Rip To The Left: Another riptide captured halfway between Tower 24 and 22
The Rip To The Right: A Huge Rip hoovering out in front of T-20
Disclaimer: These photos only required moments to take using practiced, if not amateurish, point and shoot techniques. The photographer apologizes for the lack of a telephoto lens and filters and more sustained camera set up techniques which would have produced much better photographic results, but then again the photographer was watching the water while pointing and shooting the camera in hopes of being able to capture a couple of riptides for academic and scholarly purposes and for use in the training of cadets and youth. Blah, blah, blah.
