Day 443 - High tide

 ISO 100, 120mm, f/10, 1/200 sec.

Thanks to the full moon, the high tide promised to be fabulous today. I watched the weather at the coast closely, double-checked the early high tide and at 9 am we decided all systems were go.

We arrived at Boiler Bay about an hour before high tide. Even the seagulls were watching the event.

 ISO 100, 168mm, f/11, 1/400 sec.

The waves were amazing. I don't think I have ever seen them roll in like they did.

 ISO 100, 70mm, f/11, 1/400 sec.

The wave action against the rock was something else to watch. The sound the waves made as they were rolling in was as big as the crash.

This week's assignment for the Project 52 is "Power". Don't think it gets much more powerful than this.
