[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
the winter winds have arrived on the west coast.
photographing incoming waves puts one in tune with the sounds of each wave, allowing one to predict when a big one is coming.
I like this shot for its presentation of waves breaking in the upper third, one spraying in the upper right, and the foam between the rocks in the foreground.
From a practical point of view, one has to keep his "back to the wind" to forestall rain hitting his lens and spoiling a picture.

Hi John!

The sea as it is: powerful, full of energy and... beautiful! And all this taken in harsh weather conditions! That's a great work. I'm particularly sensitive to the fact that beautiful and expressive pictures like this one can be taken without deep blue sky and great sunshine.

Well seen, well done!

Kind regards

Very impressive photo. It has its own mood. Wonderful color and composition.

Hi John.
Wow, beautifully taken. Great exposure and detail with mood.


Re-bonjour John,

Je découvre ta galerie, et voici encore une photo qui m'interpelle...

J'aime beaucoup la composition, la lumière, les couleurs, et les mouvements de l'eau sur les rochers.
Bref, j'adore !
