We rarely consider the effort that waves make in coming to shore. We see great mounds of swells a few hundred yards from shore, but only a ripple meets the shore. Why is this?

Between the shore and the great waves are shoals and bars. In this case, a rocky shoal rising up from the bottom to near the surface. The waves break on the shoals, and then a small sand bar, before reaching the shore. With might effort, they make their finally reach to achieve their goal. They reach for the shoreline rocks drenched in the light of sunset. From our perspective, it was worth the effort.
