This is the view from the back of the beach as the storm came overhead. The tower is an old observation platform for the lifeguards where they could see swimmers in difficulty and spot sharks that might visit.

Ciel noir, mer noire. On voit vraiment le mauvais temps arriver. L+F

Greg, Did you get inside before the storm hit? Like. Best wishes, Dave and Laurie

Hi Dave and Laurie, yes at the time I took this photo I was ready to go, not so much for me, but for the camera. There was a bit of wind (look at spray off the surf) and rain beginning to fall. I reached the car before it became serious.

That is a winner!

Glad you like this one Randy. It was exciting during the attempt to get some good shots before the rain unleashed. Greg

Greg Swinfield,

The other photos of this same storm are also very striking.

Hi Peter, Yes you could be right about that cropping but I wanted to keep the sign in view. I might try what you suggest when I get a chance to see if there is a nice line I can take. Thanks for the suggestion. Regards Greg

Hi Greg. Great photo. It smells well. I'm agree with Peter. Regards from Spain.

Greg Swinfield on May 6, 2011

Thanks eltuertozurdo.com, I have looked at the other photos I took that day and there are some with the proportions you suggest. In the near future I will post some more photos that will take note of the suggestion. Thanks for your comment. regards Greg
