Coming through in waves

By Mari    
It was blowing a gale at Porthcawl yesterday afternoon!

This is more or less as taken from the camera just processed in lightroom from RAW and contrast tweak, oh and a few dust spots removed, hope I got em all.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr, can feel that wind cutting right through me!
Very dramatic, super shot.
The sunlight has illuminated this wave as it whips over and throws spume into the sky towards the old light. A magnificent seascape Mari, just wonderful light.

Cracking shot Mari this is one of those images that would stand a bucket load of special paint effect as a print possibly? sorry just thinking out loud " wish I'd painted it " hope your well.

That's power - raw, unstoppable power. Beautiful timing, I like the way this captures the previous wave rebounding in the lower part of the frame.

I'm surprised that you didn't wave to me as I swam around the harbour wall.
I wonder if the rubber ring makes it difficult to recognise me?

Hi M.. a truly first class exciting composition and the perfect dramatic wave to compliment it... not the day to roll up one's trouser legs and go for a paddle there, unless you of course you are named Arnie or Jeann Claud Van Damm I've Got My Feet Wet'!! Smile Must get there with the lesser of my 2 shrimping nets. God knows what's marine life is lying on that prom worth cooking for tea. well done you !
