Another spectactularshow at high tide today.

“The Beach is Closed” (High Tide Waves Crashing Over Sea Wall, Lynch Park) Nikon D300, 18mm, F/14, 1/250s, +0.7EV, ISO 500, Silver Efex Pro ‘Dark Sepia’ Filter, Selective Toning

I was so hoping to have this image in raging color but a blah, overcast sky refused to cooperate!

C’est la vie. 🙂


  1. W O W !!!
    You really needed a model to stand on the right and get hit by that huge wave!

    • HA! LOL! Actually, I almost had a ‘model’. There was a woman with a small dog who simply seemed oblivious to the danger of the waves as she kept walking the dog ON TOP of the sea wall! At one point, she was standing in that corner created by the chainlink fence! Sadly, she moved before the wave crashed! 😀

  2. Apparently, I have to get up and out and drive for an hour each way before work to capture high tide – that is never going to happen

    • I didn’t realize you lived so far from the beach. The tide times change daily. I used to NOT check and would ultimately end up there at the completely wrong time. Thank goodness for the internet! 😉

  3. Yikes!! I LOVE the drama!

  4. Your lifeguards are wusses. 🙂 Maybe not raging color but lots of raging water.

    March came in very quietly here. Too quietly.

    • LOL! If I were you, Scott, I’d be scared then, at what the end of the month will bring!

  5. Awesome! That’s a sight I’m familiar with — my parents called the other day to say they were having similar high tide action at their place, and I should get over there with my camera! Alas, I was otherwise engaged… But good for you – even without a cooperative sky, it’s very cool!

    • Thanks, Chris! I bet anyone tuning in from the western part of the US are thinking, “What’s the big deal? We see this all time!” 🙂

  6. Wow, what a great shot! I like black and white 🙂 Was it scary? I guess if you’re used to it it isn’t but it looks pretty scary to me 🙂

    • Thanks, Kristina! More exciting than scary, I’d say. (And, no, our waves are normally small and insignificant so this has been an event due to last week’s Nor’easter). That was pretty much the largest surge that morning. We are in another storm now so if the weather cooperates this weekend, I might have a chance to try for a color one! 🙂
