Wild New Brighton

By angej  
Had a day out on Saturday and no trip to the Wirral is complete without a visit to New Brighton. I knew the tide would be in which was what I wanted as I wanted to try and capture the waves crashing against the rocks.
I didn't expect the size of the waves to be as big or that they would come right above the wellies but it was fun..

See what you thinkSmile

PS - See the large version for a bit more spraySmile

Many thanks guys for your comments, Mark, they certainly are big and I expected with so little wind for them to be quite gentle but they weren't at all.

This is fabulous, Ange, a cracking image. It's not just the timing in capturing that wave; it's also the dark tones and the way the lighthouse appears to puncture them. An HC richly deserved.
