Hazardous Surf Conditions   by onewing

Hazardous Surf Conditions

The weather forecast for yesterday said hazardous surf conditions, they weren't kidding, it was wet and wild. Luckily there weren't any surfers attempting to ride these waves.

Much calmer today though and the sun is shining. .
Looks rather rough out there

It does look rough. Very beautiful though.
August 11th, 2020  
wow that does look rough
August 11th, 2020  
I love how these waves catch the light.
August 11th, 2020  
Beautiful...we have a dangerous situation at our seaside at the moment as well, a combination of weather factors and more people at the beach than usual, so hundreds of rescues a day and a few drownings as well, I’m afraid ....
August 11th, 2020  
Certainly looks wild.
August 11th, 2020  
I can see you shot this fairly late and it makes the scene have so much more feeling!
August 11th, 2020  
wow rolling in at a pace!
August 11th, 2020  
So whipped up and frothy, I love it. I can almost hear the wind and the crash of the surf.
August 11th, 2020  
So much power in these waves. Fabulous shot.
August 11th, 2020  
Wow you have really captured the power of the sea Babs lovely horizontal layers of light and colour:)

@maggiemae no it wasn't late, it was about 2 pm the sky was just black because of the rain. I just managed to get back to the car before the heavens opended again. In fact I got blown back to the car because the wind was wild
August 11th, 2020  
Good shot
August 11th, 2020  
Interesting layers of the waves
August 11th, 2020  
Fav. You have captured the waves coming in very well. I love the sea when it is rough.

Stunning waves and capture , no one in their right mind would surf in this (or would they !!) fav
August 11th, 2020  
Nice capture of the rough surf
August 11th, 2020  
@beryl Yes they would Beryl, in fact a chap drowned while surfing at Collaroy about 200 km south of here about the same time that I took this photo at Fingal Bay. Conditions were similar to here.
August 11th, 2020

Makes for a great picture. I read in the paper recently that the biggest surfing waves are in Portugal. Can't remember the name, but the pictures were incredible

Wild wild weather. I'm glad the fanatics stayed home.
August 11th, 2020

Definitely blew away a few cobwebs walking on the beach.

@busylady Maybe the beach you mentioned was Praia do Norte at Nazare in Portugal. The grandson of a friend of mine travels around the world surfing.

@momamo Apparently a surfer drowned on this day too but in Sydney as the conditions there were similar to here. You always seem to get one foolhardy person don't you.

Great capture of the power of the waves and wind!
August 12th, 2020  
Wow -- the power of water!
August 12th, 2020

August 12th, 2020
