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.

Wow, what a wave. The lighthouse is safe for the moment, but this photo shows how that cliff will be eroded and the lighthouse will tumble, given a few hundred years.

As others have said, the fact the wave is breaking so forcefully in two directions makes this, and gives it such force.

An excellent image, and looks as though just coming away was an achievement, let alone coming away with a worthwhile image!
