I didn't plan on taking any photos this day but after running for an errand I made a swing along the shore line to see what the nasty windy rainy weather had in store. Always with my camera I couldn't resist once I saw the waves. One of these days I'll get a good video camera to also catch the sound. Liquid thunder best describes it as the ground shakes as thousands of pounds of water strike. And every so often almost silence as the spent breaker retreats with the muffled sound of storm worn pebbles and rocks rolling back to the sea.
It wasn't easy taking photos with sideways rain hitting the lens but at least it wasn't snow!
Please keep in mind, I'm using a telephoto lens at a safe distance. Never tempt Mother Nature, she can overwhelm where you think it is safe!
