The encroaching wave

By Kaxxie
Hi everyone

It’s two years today since Storm Ciara battered Morecambe so I though I’d reminisce. The sun kept coming out causing rainbows in the spray. It was beautiful but I have never been so cold in my life. I used my iPhone and kept my camera in the boot safely out of the way of the spray. It was so cold I could barely hold my phone. It actually stopped working at one point. Not sure if it was because it was drenched or my fingers were too cold. And that wind……it was a struggle to remain standing. Some gusts made me run a few steps which amused me greatly. 😂😂😂 What a morning. 😍😉

Thank you all for your votes and kind comments on yesterday’s Autumnal Delight image and to Rich for his precious UA.
Belated thank you to SlowSong and Diane (Fefe) for your UAs on my Sunset at low tide image. It’s hard to believe it’s the same bay! I have thanked you all privately. You’re all very much appreciated.

Take care

Great capture of it Karen. Apparently we just had a major rogue wave out on our west coast yesterday.

Very dramatic. I once ruined a telephoto lens trying to get an image of a wave like that. Great composition.

An excellent capture of the waves battering the promenade, but I think it has got beyond encroaching! It is now full on!!

You were extremely brave to get so close to these waves, Karen.
However, your gallantry was well rewarded with this amazing capture.
