The sunlight has illuminated this wave as it whips over and throws spume into the sky towards the old light. A magnificent seascape Mari, just wonderful light.

That's power - raw, unstoppable power. Beautiful timing, I like the way this captures the previous wave rebounding in the lower part of the frame.

I'm surprised that you didn't wave to me as I swam around the harbour wall.
I wonder if the rubber ring makes it difficult to recognise me?
