Winter storm

This was taken last Sunday in Milford on Sea.  Not `mooching` weather, I can tell you!  In fact, there was so much spray about, I really only risked a couple of shots.  Also, the waves were pretty substantial, the wind was gale force, and I was not going to take  the risk of having one catch me unawares. (:o)

What a powerful looking sea - I don't blame you for not hanging around. A great capture.

I need the sea
to wash over me
to empty out this place
Seems the only way
to salvage myself

Kathryn's poem made me realize that we're damned it we do and damned if we don't! That eternal draw to the sea. It must be deep in our genes somewhere, Roz. If it weren't for our cameras....

nicely done ros,are you going back to this beach when the weather is better?
Rosalyn Sears: Oh yes! But I do like it devoid of people, too. (:o)
Lovely shot, Ros. Some pretty wild water here!
Ros'. In some way or another you always seem to make a ''big splash''. Wise words about respecting the sea. Looks great in black and white ... but thinking about it you probably didn't have much choice. ;-) richard
Great dramatic shot Ros. The sea is boiling a likey for me
Very nice shot. It shows us the strength of the wave. Great lighting and contrast

Does exactly what it says in the title - truly a winter storm. Fabulous photograph Roz - I can hear the Ocean's roar.
Before I read your text my first thought was how treacherous this looked and I hoped you had a good foothold.

Great nature shot. Don't you just love the sea? Never a dull moment with those waves smile
I think you are very brave for being out there in the first place. This is one of the best "frozen-water" shots I have seen.

Well captured Roz - and I like it in mono too. wink
Impressive and heavy atmosphere - The choice of B&W is really a good idea !

I am fasinated by the ocean and waves, but generally I love the blues and greens so much I can't stand the thought of a B&W conversion. However this photo certainly has changed my mind. This is amazing! The details of the splash if fantastic! Thank you for sharing this one!

Hi Roz, just been trawling thru your archive. Your images of the birds of prey are great but this shot and your other seascape really caught my eye - the b/w treatment is perfect for the two images. Mike
