Another wave

By martinw  
Another wave, another soaking! I love capturing these images, being so close to all that power out in the elements at their most hectic. It's a real challenge keeping safe, keeping the gear dry (never mind me) and getting the shot. Still I think the result is worth the effort.

Thanks for looking and for all the c+c on yesterday's image.

Great shot!
The 'wee splash' of red makes the 'big splash' stand out even more! Smile

Amazing shot and well caught. Glad you uploaded the shot as least we know you made it after the storms.
Very angry sea and very untrustworthy force of Nature.

Great shot Martin-take out the dogshit bin and losing that bit of red really changes the shot.
Superb timing.

Don't mess with the power of the ocean, you might die.

Great wave my friend, tremendous work.

All the very best

I like the thumb of the last one better but the big version of this one better. Just more power here.
