It’s been an ambient (read ferocious) Force 8, gusting 10 all day. When the F10 (55–63 mph) hit, it really hit hard but I was beginning to get cabin fever so I needed out. I drove to our village to get some local messages and then went to find some good waves to photograph.
This is at our local beach – Dale.
“Very high waves with long overhanging crests; resulting foam in great patches is blown in dense white streaks along the direction of the wind; on the whole the surface of the sea takes on a white appearance; rolling of the sea becomes heavy; visibility affected.” – Wikipedia
And then I drove home feeling glad I had been out but even gladder I was going home.
