Waves breaking between pier pylons

A Window to the Ocean: White caps huge water splashes from the force of the waves breaking between the narrow confines of the cement pylons, the end of the pier creating a window with a view of the calm ocean. I went to the beach to photograph sunset, and was walking near the pier, and noticed the huge waves breaking under the pier and then the perspective of the pier creating a window to view the blue waters of the calm ocean.
