Storm at dawn ~ 2

From the storm at its fiercest a couple of days ago. Sorry, I''ve barely come down from the high I got from being there! The headlights are those of a police car.. advising motorists, onlookers and keeping an eye on me! They took a good look, decided either I knew what I was doing or I wasn't worth saving and moved on!
Mother Nature is stamping her foot big-time here! BtW - if you had ever seen a dog swept out to sea and three people drowned trying to save it, you might not be quite so gung-ho about being in the forefront of the action...

i kept staring at this and couldn't help but be in awe of mother nature and of your tenacity to get the storm shots. maybe because i highly doubt my swimming ability that i wouldn't dare attempt teasing mother nature at her most tempestuous moments; or maybe that i just haven't had the opportunity to witness something like this (well, i had but didn't have a camera then). aces on all counts, david. aces!

Thanks Vikki.. I show the sea respect... no way would I act rashly here and I consider myself a strong swimmer

@farmreporter @francoise Thank you for the comment.... its not so much the crashing waves that are the danger but the undertow that drags you out to sea and I was extremely careful to avoid that.

@vignouse Richard I know what the sea is like, I live by it! I show it great respect and don't need to have seen people drowning to do that. I didn't intend to sound gung-ho because I was anything but! I spend a lot of time assessing risk before looking through the viewfinder and continue to look before releasing the shutter... and I wouldn't, under any circumstances, attempt to save a drowning dog!
