A Year of Waves
I notice that this month's Photo Contest is Waves. So I thought it might be a fun change to share 10 different wave photographs from last year, all showing different moods of our beloved Atlantic, from quiet to roaring, from warm summer afternoon to cold winter evening.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did in each moment.

We start our series off with a wave photo from early last year. I loved the way the morning light created this arch with the spray.

Here is another effect of light and spray I love to watch for: rainbows as the wave breaks.

Where is the horizon? Shrouded in fog! This was on the 4wd Carova beach in May.

As the fog began to burn off just a bit, I was treated to this magnificent view of towering clouds and fog over the ocean.

I call this, High Surf at Jennettes.

These were wave sets created by Hermine.

I love to aim my long lens at breaking waves. You see texture and color you miss without the close focus.

A summer image from the "wrong" time of day. But this was the time I had, so I chose to go. Glad I did!

Sometimes, of course, our waves are backdrops for other action. This charging out from the breakers stallion is a good example. Long lenses are a must here!
