The Storm

This series of photos are from last winter when I was lucky enough to be at the ocean when a storm hit. I was so excited and was crazily snapping pictures. This man walked down close to the water and stood watching. I was afraid he was going to be swept away but I couldn't stop shooting him. Words can't describe how awesome it was watching this storm.

These photos are much more effictive in the larger version.

  6. WOW Faye these are awesome shots. That guy was nuts to be standing so close but lucky for you since he adds so much to the images. I love the rainbow one and the third one looks sort of dreamy.. with all that white water crashing about. They are all just super great. Have a great weekend. :)

  8. These are wonderful, exciting storm photos. You DO know we're expecting another big one? I didn't get out there last time. I can feel your passion even if it was last winter. Nita

  10. There is that very famous shot of a man in a lighthouse about to be swept away by a huge wave surrounding the entire lighthouse... I believe he died, how sad. Glad this did not have the same ending, although the man... is he nuts!!!

  11. I'm with Kate about nature dwarfing us. This photo is not just unique, but classy, too--what with the rainbow and all that adds a unique quality...
