Tidal moon

The magnificence of the sea is never far from my mind. I’ve lived near to the sea or to an ocean for most of my life and have never failed to be in complete and utter awe of the majestic power that waves can produce.

This afternoon we went to walk by the sea, knowing that it would be high tide, so we weren’t expecting to walk on the sand or anything. The sky looked dull and rather grey and to be fair, I was not expecting to get much in the way of even a half-decent photograph. I’m fortunate enough to be having lessons from the fantastic photographer, Jeff Anderson, who has set a number of tasks for the group to undertake. This week we’re looking at lighting and backgrounds and that was my brief for today’s sojourn. I wasn’t expecting to be able to achieve much, given the rather poor lighting conditions.

Still, you’ve got to give these things a go haven’t you?

We arrived at the North Bay sea front just in  time to witness some fairly spectacular wave action. The ferocity of the clashes as each wave grew in intensity, crashed against the sea wall and ricocheted back out to sea was awe-inspiring. See what you think…

Waves breaking about 30 metres out to sea

Waves crash into each other

I love the way  the water cascades

Each wave brings a present from the sea

The power of the sea is incredible

The castle has seen so many of these storms

The Iron Man weathers the storm

My FAB Hubby nearly got wet!

Can you hear the crashing waves?

I think the power of a tidal moon is amazing!
