It's always a treat to view your images large. I like the contrast of the white sea and the black rocks . A superb scene as usual. Hope you're not too badly hurt.

love those little sun rays Tony, you are lucky where you are, the skies here in SoCal are for the most part diabolical for photography.

Almost looks like a mono foreground and a coloured sky, but the small amount of colour in the rocks keeps it looking natural. Good capture of the suns rays on the clouds.

Beautiful rays and colour in the sky and so much detail to look at in that mass of foaming water. The quality of the image is top notch as always. This would stand the test of time hanging on the wall.

Hey Tony, hope your head is okay!!I love the rays in the sky here and of course your incredible strong compositions! large is a treat! I googled W.N. and can't believe stuff like that could even happen...thank goodness it didn't last a really long time. Your grand daughter was a perfect model - when I read about her smiling it made me smile too and also it made me happy to know children wouldn't have to be humiliated in this day and age!

Superb & unworldly. Makes me think of HG Well's "Time Machine" where the time traveller lands up on a beach in the far future & watches the dying sun setting... Sorry, got a bit carried away there ;>}
