Ripping yarns, beautiful lies and a few home truths.
Have you ever read 'The Last Grain Race' by Eric Newby? He took some pretty good photos on board as well.
No I haven't Tom, though someone mentioned the book to me recently.I find these pics more terrifying than your everyday monsters.
Me too Sarah, I think I must have drowned off a boat in a former life. Absolutely terrifying thought.
I'll send you it. X
The power in those sea's is terrible yet wonderful to see. Such raw, unchecked power is incredible.
They are not the kind of waves you want to see coming towards you. I think what is so scary about them (apart from the rolling foam) is their chaotic, random nature. There seems to be little chance in anticipating exactly what those monsters are going to do next!Ps. See the crucifix in the bottom picture?
Terrifying alright. I was going to say something about drowning in a former life too. It's a constant with me, the idea of wrestling the expanse of any sea even when its flat makes me catch my breath. Stormy seas are the stuff of nightmares. My father hated the ocean. Water is for washing in, he used to say. I only ever saw him go for a swim once.
I have often wondered whether such swells are common near Albany... Imagine being out in that!? Way too scary to contemplate! Best wishes Sarah
You too, Tim.Those photos just make me shout 'Jesus!' in awe.
