Well, I hope, first of all, that everyone is safe and well - it's a pretty blowy affair, right enough.
I went up to New Brighton for a few shots yesterday at high tide. This was before the peak of the storm, and it was a fairly low tide. But ...here you are...Arwen.jpg

It almost looks like a snowy alpine landscape, a great image Pete!

Thanks Scott! Hope it's not too bad up where you are.
Any stormy weather mostly passed us by. Some gales on Friday night, lovely day yesterday and woke up to a dusting of snow this morning.

Very nice shot -- I would consider toning-down the blues a little, as on my screen I see a lot of blues. But overall this is a fantastic capture.

Cheers GFM...I'll have a look. Difficult to get the white balance quite right in such conditions!

Yes well I assume when you refer to New Brighton it is the new pier? In 1990 I did visit Brighton Pier and observed the the remains of the old pier ,is it still there?

Ah, no...New Brighton is a small town in the Wirral, near Liverpool, about 280 miles away from Brighton on the south coast of England.

I thought I had replied to this thread, but not.

Its an amazingly graphic photo of the power of the ocean/sea. Where were you to take the photo, and hope you did not get your feet wet...:)

Thanks Mark..I was standing at the edge of the water looking out over the waves a couple of dozen yards away. Fully waterproofed, wellies and everything!
Excellent shot Pete, love the colours and atmosphere.
Thanks Ryan!
