No sign at present of V2 & 3 but love the wonderful shapes in those enormous, rolling waves.

You have captured the angry energy of the waves well Lillian ! I like the water on the lens in V3 - although not good for the camera Smile

They look like mean breakers Lillian, better get an Ikelite housing or your kit will be worth nothing. V3 shows just how much spray there was very brave of you all. Wet Wet Wet that's the Group...John

Fantastic rollers, Lillian, love the spray flying from the tops. Carol
Now that's a roller if ever I saw one and ono disrespect to Carmen but this is a stand up winner.

I have to give V2 my user award for the great composition keeping me in the left 3rd and the waves in the others! Shame you were a little slow a second earlier I was flat out on the beach with camera further most away from the sea

You have a great time away again and I look forward to seeing the images on your return

16 Apr 2013 5:37PM
Fabulous images Lillian. Love V1, petrified of water but the sea and waves fasinate me Grin
Love this part of the world, especially Weymouth.

The sky was dark, all filled with doom,
Ladened down with darkened gloom .
Like heavy shrouds, those blackened clouds,
Filling all the sky.

Roiling out like death, was seen,
No light or hope from them to glean.
Filled with rain, this mortals bane,
Across the sea did ply.

Mighty did those mountains rise,
Foam topped waves that scene belies.
Those rising waves, like watery graves,
Destruction there amassed.

Grinding all found in their path,
Striking out in mortal wrath.
Crashing down on all around,
Destruction there was cast.

Thunder boomed across the way,
Light'ning struck without delay.
T'was danger found in all that sound.
That storm had reached it's peak!

One lone ship did sail through,
Harried by that storming brew.
Tossed to and fro, that ship did go,
It's saving there to seek.

With sails ripped and strength all spent,
Reeling back and forth it went.
Without a hope, it could not cope
With those waves that be.

The winds and waves from that dark storm,
Across that ship, it all did swarm.
That ship, it sank! of death, it drank!
Beneath that angry sea.
