PERFECT STORM

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Thanks for all you comments & votes on yesterdays' up-load - as always, very much appreciated.

The storm tonight has been terrible, everything has had to be tied down outside, it's been a terrible night, and looks like we are in for a bad day as well !

I was woken up early by things blowing around outside, and was thinking what the sea would be like. I remembered a photo that I had taken some time ago, dug it out, and decided to put this one up today as I felt it was apt for such weather conditions.
I've thought of sharing this with you in the past, as personally I just love the sheer size & force of this wave captured, but John (hubby) kept putting me off, as he can't see what I see in it - bet he'll be proved right now, usually is lol. Oh well, here goes !

Hope you all are ok and be safe in this terrible weather !

Chris

Yep, hubby's a bit off the mark with this one Chris. B/W is not my usual cup off tea, but this captures the awsome power of the sea for me.
The sea is something you don't mess with, as some folks have found out during the past year!
Hope you don't suffer too much from this wind, we seem to have been lucky in Worcestershire......so far! Grin

Chris, glad you were not put off sharing this image. Very powerful shot. Is there a touch of sepia tinting? Whatever, I like it a lot. And thanks for your continuing support to a newcomer to EPZ - I really appreciate it.
Regards, Ronnie.
