Challenge has finished
This challenge invites you to show us your interesting pictures of waves, (wind-generated waves); surf-breakers at the beach, foaming waves crashing over the rocky shore, swells in the deep ocean, ripples along the shoreline. Minimal evidence of humans, or pets. Man-made constructions will be accepted, but only if they enhance the subject, which are the waves. (For example, a lighthouse (subject) with waves below won't be accepted, but a lighthouse where the waves (the subject) are crashing over it would be okay.) Size of your entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side.

We were having large swells from the storms in the Pacific. Surfers where having a great time, this wave was at its peak when I pressed the shutter button.
