Today Sunday we were on our way back from seeing my new Great Grandson . We stopped at Westward Ho . The Tide was in , the wind blowing hard, waves crashing on the shore and this was the only wave I managed that was any good . What do you think . ?

Wonderful waves...looks cold though. The foreground gives it even more interest.

You have certianly captured the power of the sea in this fine shot, Mavis. Nice one.
You sound like you are having a ball over there. It must be great to finally see your grandchild. All the best to you and your expanding family for 2008 and thank you for all your comments on dancingqueen, valerie1 and my own portfolios.
