Nipped out at the weekend down to Porthcawl to grab a few big wave shots, it was gusting 70 to 80mph so the conditions were fairly challenging .....Tongue

Had I known you were visiting I would have popped over.... but then you would have been in my shot as I think I would have added a few hundred mm to my focal length! Bravely captured indeed, Jeremy! I think it's no 2 for me but all are outstanding.

Amazing pictures. But you really should have lashed yourself to the mast first. Even pictures this good aren't worth the risk to your life - and the lives of others...

Ann the sea was amazing but because of the high winds and non stop spray you just couldn't point the camera to sea even for a split second Sad
