Haven't been doing much shooting for the past few months. But I did find time to go out to the Pacific Northwest coast a couple weeks ago when we had high surf conditions at the same time as an extreme high tide. The title comes from crashing waves at Cape Disappointment, which is in the extreme SW corner of Washington State.

Crashing Disappointment

And just to show that I haven't disappeared completely, I did read Andrew's post last week. So in the spirit of Andrew's post, here is the first image I posted to the Wednesday C&C thread when Claus was still hosting - something like #65, I think.

Still Waiting for Spring!

When will Spring ever come?? Shot with the good old E500.

Spectacular. Your angle contrasts the white against the dark headland behind. This brings out the fine details of the surface  and the tiny droplets parting from the wave. Catching a moment where some of the wave is being hurled forwards while another section is hurled back adds drama and energy - it shouts of the conflict between ocean and land.

Above, the lighthouse remains secure and aloof.
