SYMPHONY ON SEA, Lorenzo Movement

Following on my earlier post  ‘Symphony on sea atlantic movement‘ The following photos were taken the day after Storm Lorenzo last week. I stayed indoors on the day, following the general advice, and it was actually a bit of a non event in this area, not at all as bad as expected. When I went out the next day there was still a respectable amount of turbulence on the water, which I attempted to capture in my photos. I look for movement with pattern, colour and tonal contrasts.

STORMY ATLANTIC 0CEAN

dsc_7514-

These photos were taken on Clogher Beach, on the west end of the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. This is our most popular spot in West Kerry for capturing big bold crashing atlantic waves. Yesterday I took a trip there and took several photos, as one does. How grateful I am that we no longer have to use film that one has to use sparingly for fear of waste and cost. So here are a few of those photos.
