Default High Surf after the storm

G'day all

We've had heaps of high winds & heavy seas this last week with lots of safety warnings for swimmers & surfers
One morning I walked the beach to see the washing-machine affect of the waves ... no surfers were in the water!

1- Heavy Surf-1 [this pic had had a bit more pp that #2 to open the whites]


2- Heavy Surf-2


As always, feedback welcome
Phil

Nice shots Phil,

I am jealous of the weather you have down there, you really are enjoying it.

Ozzie,

I am not a good enough photographer to comment on the quality of these photos.
But I would like to ask a question.

As I look at the photos, I cannot tell if I'm looking at a wave that is 2 feet tall or 12 or 20 feet tall. Should a photo have something in it to give the person who is looking at it some perspective about it's size.

Thank you and I hope you were not offended by my question.

Best regards,
FP

G'day FP

I would prefer to have somebody in the image to give some semblance of size, and when one can see a known-sided object / person then our eyes can make the related adjustments

But on this day the beaches were closed to surfing & swimming. The 'angry' seas had come across the Pacific from a cyclone around Tonga, several thousand kilometres away - taking 4-5 days to reach our eastern shores



Hope this helps
Phil

Nice set. Really shows off the inner workings of magazines and such. Like billboards or surfing ads.
