the wave

By pebbles  
Similar shot to that uploaded last year, taken in stormy conditions, but this time converted to black and white.

A favourite bay of us epz Welsh folks complete with Italian coffee bar and restaurant to escape to after getting chilled taking so many shots of the incoming waves !

Lovely shot, Alethea. Very dramatic and moody. I love the way the lighthouse seems to jump out as the brightest object in the picture, almost as if you'd added it in later!

Hello Alethea, you have timed the shot well catching the high splash so dramatically...the dark background and then the bright lighthouse all contrast well. Nice work.
