stormy weather

  1. Beautiful if i concentrate all my thoughts only in one word. Though the waves are there and it’s not peaceful at all, i get a very calm feeling looking at the photo. Details of the stones, branches, all those more than 50 shades of grey and not just them…


    • The jetty seems to always have a goodly pile of driftwood on it. It is, after all, the place where the river runs into the ocean, bringing trees that have fallen into the river with it. Some beaches also tend to accumulate more driftwood than others. I’m guessing it has something to do with currents and the shape of the beach.


    • This is shot at the jetty where the river runs into the sea. I was amazed at how brown the water was from all the mud it had gathered along the way. Our clay soil doesn’t manage to retain much of the rain we get except in the flood plains where the river runs over its banks. But I’m glad you folks are getting some of this moisture. Hopefully as snow that will melt when you need it later this year, rather than flooding.


    • It’s been very grey indeed! ☂ You wouldn’t want to be climbing on those rocks when this was taken because the wind and the wild waves could have knocked you out to sea.


  2. I love a mid-range shot like this. The details draw me in and create the feeling that I’m really there, in the middle of it all, struggling to get the perfect image without drowning or ruining my camera!


    • A longer lens (250mm) helps a great deal with keeping from drowning or getting the camera wet. Though I never took the camera out last Sunday at the beach because the wind was blowing the spray far too much to take chances. We don’t often get the strong sustained winds, but I’ve seen hurricane force gusts literally knock the gulls out of the air (or should I say ‘ass over teakettle’?) 😀


    • Yep, the wind gusts have been quite impressive and abundant these last several days at the very least. No surprise they’ve moved on to your neck of the woods. 🙂
