Nature stirring up the surf,

chucking her weight around the sky

throwing punches through the sea

splashing mighty waves on rocks ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bent on destruction

or perhaps re-modelling

Nature is sure in great shape, you have a great eye for the weather and it seems your heart is in there too!

WOW! Very strong expression of nature force. Great photo. LIKE, Micky.

Thank you so much, dear Mike - quite a powerful verse to accompany the power of the Pacific. Happy weekend, dear friend (O:

wow, I'm speechless about so much natural force and beauty. I like your photo, dear Suzi! Hugs, Ellen

Suzi in Oregon on November 19, 2012

Yes, one of these storms is stirring up as I write. We will have 65+ mph wind gusts and very big waves (up to 24 feet) tomorrow. Thanks, Micky, Hubs and Ellen for visiting and liking this dark and stormy image. Best wishes from the SW Oregon Coast (O:

I am looking forward to today's reporting then Suzi because this is a great shot. It is very nice indeed.

Best wishes from dull and boring weather of North Carolina - Jethro

This is like a painting dear Suzi. Magnificent Pacific surf at Coos Bay. I would really have liked to be standing next to your here - what a beautiful experience it would have been!

Monday hugs from rainy Norway, Amelia

Hi, Jethro - thanks for the great comment! Today was wild, but so wet that I couldn't keep the lens dry most of the time. Did get a few shots that I'm working on, but the big waves came after we were back home, drying out in front of the firebox. I admire your Sandy shots even more now (O:

Thank you so much for gift and wonderful comment, dearest Amelia - we have some great sea storms without all the rain that we experienced today - I got soaked and the high gusty winds kept me from holding decent focus, but I loved it all the same. Sometimes it's best to just be there and feel it, with a friend - wish you were here, or I was there. Warm dry hugs from wet and stormy Oregon (O:

Great capture of the frightening power of the sea Suzi. :)

A great sense of energy captured here dear LTM so a YSL from me ~ I love big waves ~ hugs ~ GW

Yes, and thanks, Billy - good to be in a safe place looking on. Our storms really bring the people out, no matter how wet and wild. This is a fairly sheltered cove - probably had winds from the west that day - that's when it gets really spectacular. The prevailing south winds tend to flatten the big waves sideways somehow. Looking forward to more like this one this Winter (O:

I love them too, dearest GW - amazing to see so much water move so quickly. And each storm seems a bit different - the dynamics change: wind, moon, tides. Thank you very much, and best fishes (O:

The awesome power of the ocean storms are vividly portrayed in this excellent shot Suzi..

It is easy to imagine the thundering sounds of these crashing waves and the feel of salt-spray on my lips...A most thought provoking image! Superb photo! Like :))

Kind regards from the UK


Suzi in Oregon on December 23, 2012

We'll be getting lots of storms along our coast through the winter, Kazia, with lots of dark days like in this image. Thank you for your visit and descriptive comment. Wishing you and your loved ones a warm Season's Greetings and a New Year full of joy and beauty (O:

Suzi in Oregon on December 23, 2012

You must see some very stormy seas near home, dear Jim - we love the storms and venture out for the bigger waves when we can. Lots to look forward to with winter upon us. Warm best wishes, with thanks and a happy hug (O:
