A happy hello, Jim in Ireland - and thanks! We love the storms, and I love photographing them. Hope all is well and happy with you and yours. Thanks for your visit (O:

Thanks Suzi. We are experiencing extremely cold weather, both for this time of the year and especially for this part of Ireland which is usually so mild that the grass has to cut during the winter! Perhaps the unusually cold weather is appropriate for Europe's serious economic downturn! Otherwise things are fine with us personally! Cheers - Jim

Just discovered this Wikipedia link to one of the Lofoten artists, in case you're interested Suzi:

Making me quite nostalgic thinking of my relatively youthful days in the Lofotens! Thanks Suzi. All the best - Jim

Hello, Guy - no, I've not found any, but I hear there's a place way out in the middle of the Pacific where the net floats gather and go round and round. We are having a storm right now that's making lots of white caps and 11 ft. waves. Thanks for liking my image. I love the sea (O:

Excellent capture, very nice shot, and I am not much of a baseball fan. I do watch a little football and car racing but I don' watch much TV at all. LIKE Best wishes, Hal

Suzi in Oregon on December 12, 2010

Thanks, Hal - we don't watch much TV either - mainly movies and PBS for a short while of an evening. But I am a baseball fan - go Oakland Athletics! And I'm very happy for the SF Giants - their time did come at last (O:

Amazing shot. Most other people would stay inside.

Greetings from Denmark, Finn

Suzi in Oregon on March 6, 2011

Hello, Finn, and welcome! I thought that too, and was surprised to see so many locals gathered to see the BIG waves, see and hear the ocean's power, and marvel at the amount of water moving in just one 25ft(7.5m) wave. I really like your ID photo (O:
