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.

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 !
