All weekend we have been reading about the rip currents and high winds out in the waters....but had no that we could capture pictures of how angry the waters could get. I honestly thought when I saw wight from the beach road that it was sea fog, wrong... it was waves crashing along the jetties and seashore.
A fellow photographer directed me down to the pier and said there would be a tree that had washed up on the beach and I might enjoy that perspective. While I am always amazed at the strength of water.... I was utterly horrified to see that there were surfers out in the water so incredibly close to the pier. I refused to take any pictures of them and their stupidity. I could not continue to watched them, when they would go underwater and then what seemed like an eternity before they would pop back up. So we quickly moved on down the beach. I sure hope they learned some lessons quickly and got out of the water.
Here the jetties look pretty calm until see see how tilted this pilot boat was riding as he was headed out to open water towards an incoming ship.
With all the high winds of the day the image below seemed to capture all of it's furry
