A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Storm



We were going camping for a couple of weeks, but Tropical Cyclone Hamish had us scuttling for home. After a week of storms and wind and relentless seas, Hamish seems to have retreated, leaving sixty kilometres of coastline damaged from oil leaking from a damaged freighter.

Without a surfer to give scale, these waves could be a metre high, rather than three metres of boiling foam they were in reality, and yes I am about to get drenched once more by the line of squalls coming across the sky!

Cyclones aren't all that conducive to getting out with one's camera!

I feel your pain! I have lived in Florida all my life and hurricane season around here is always an apprehensive time, especially in the last few years.

Thanks for going out in the rain Pete, I really like this shot, the colours and all that white spray.

Now this is a stunning photo. The light, well just about everything reminds me of artwork; an oil painting actually.
