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...

Does the camera live?

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
