First class capture as ever Jim. I love the sea, and have respect for it. My mother grew up beside it and gave me that respect. I'm sure you're the same.
Looks like it is coming in with a crash and a bang! Lovely shot! Like!
My godness ~ are these folks safe in their houses??? Wonderful picture dear friend, love it a lot ~ take care of you Jim ~ big hug ~ Maja
Good one Jim, I am glad the weather was kinder to us than that.
That's a bobby dazzler of a picture Jim
Now for me, I like action shots with loads of atmosphere (even damp and salty atmosphere) like thisun!
I cannot really tell from the zoomed in picture, but them steps down to t'beach look bloomin' steep if I judge it right.
Reminds of some B&W film I took in t'olden days.
Keep up the good work, that man!
beautiful scene, great shot
Paula K~~~~It's settled down now Paula, lets hope it stays that way for your forthcoming visit ;>)
Puna-----Greetings Anand, well, if you came here during the hours of darkness, you are likely to find many rod fishermen here..;>)
AndrzejSmolinski~~~~~You are most welcome Andrzej, I appreciate your good comment ;>)
><((((º> methysmena…-----Good to see you Nelly, thanks for nice comment ;>)
pivatana~~~It's a pleasure to have you drop in Holger...I'm grateful for your visit, your wishes and generous appraisal ;>)
JJAguilarV---I am delighted you called in my friend, it is too long since we last chatted..I remember you from three years since ;>) I look forward to revisiting your gallery soon ;>)
M.Curran~~~Too right there Martin, I never take anything for granted when I enter the domain of the North Sea..You can bet when things go wrong, and they do, it will be in worsening conditions and the snow-ball effect always happens.
joyfotos----At the height of a strong Nor'Easterly, waves of four to five metres come crashing into this wall, traffic is forbidden to pass and the houses here tremble with every breaker. If this coincides with a high spring tide, the sea overwhelms the village causing much damage to the fabric of the buildings.
beegood~~~Greetings Maja, the answer to your question is NO!! In my lifetime, this village came very close to being swallowed up by a terrible storm in 1953!! The householders will board up their windows and doors given enough warning ;>)
john adamson---Hello John..as always, a visit from you is a real pleasure ;>) Actually, the weather settled down following that unseasonal spell that dampened your Lakeland itinary ;>) and our Autumn has really been quite kind too ;>)
Jethrohoyt---Goodonya pal---I was looking at your B+W pics of Scarborough this morning, then my computer crashed, as they do..I was going to comment on that marine Drive photo from the sixties..As for these steps, you are right, they are very steep, quite slippy and narrow.
Sig Holm~~~~Hiya Sig. Thanks for stopping by bud, it's always good to see you ;>)
Kind regards to you all, I enjoyed your visit ;>)
we spent many happy holidays here at sandsend when i was a child thanks for sharing this view

EdwardTur~~~Hello Edward_, I am most grateful for your extensive visit to my gallery..Your nice comments are much appreciated ;>)
andy colley~~~Thanks Andy...coincidently, I too spent many happy times as a small child at Sandsend, in the 1940's..An old aunt was a manager for Lord Normanby, she ran one of the guest lodges deep in Mulgrave wood..That old cottage was enchanted I'm sure ;>)
Impressive ! Wild nature against men's bold and fragile pretentions.
