I like to see photo in different climate. It is really life. The wave indicate that the wind is blowing very hard. Excellent shot.

Cheers, Jeff

Hi Steve, this is what I call,"raining in the wet" nice shot.Cheers, Eduardo.

Anna, Steven, Jeff, Eduardo & David this shot was taken from inside the car out my open window away from the rain, in the pouring rain. all the surfers can do is look at the waves i wanted the feeling of the wind, rain and the surf i think this shot caught the lot. thank you all. steve

Drew & Bits yes that is Yallingup on a very bad day you could not surf this lot nor get out you would be blown back to the beach. bits yes the waves where very big but unsurfable. steve

Steve i have never been down here when the weather is like this it was such a shock to see the change even to the point of the car being buffered by the wind. could almost be the Scottish coast as well. steve

Steve i can tell you we have had one of the wettest,Dullest and windiest winters on record which is good but to me this looks so out of place from what i know of oz. steve
