Wrath of Ciara

By steve_eb    
Sunday saw me take a drive down to East Sussex to see what Storm Ciara had to offer...OMG

First hurdle was...
How to get any shots...then how to stay dry...how to keep spray off the lens...the list went on needless to say it was a hell of a challenge!

So car parked at an appropriate angle passenger window open huddled in the back seat behind drivers seat so as not to catch the 7th big wave spray hitting the car even at the back of the car park.

I am happy with the shots I managed in such testing circumstances, best storm I've ever been witness to.

Comments good or bad welcome & thanks for looking in...

Steve

By technique I guess you refer to the hunkering down in the back of the car...it was the only way lol

Thank you very much for the UA Marcell...the processing of the image was a challenge due to the sea spray but was worth the effort.

Awe inspiring image showing the incredible power of the sea. There is a certain softness to the image due to the conditions which enhances the picture.
Certainly worth your trip and difficult technical conditions.

Thanks Phil the power was immense yes...a percentage of the softness is due to processing as there was a lot of spray to eliminate to get some clarity which in turn created noise that had to be reduced hence a softness to the water which I liked as it looked painterly.
