The Wave

The Wave

I took this picture during a winter storm from the beach in Newhaven, East Sussex. It was wild. I was running in and out of the surf on the steep shingle beach doing my best to dodge the waves, get some pictures, and not get pulled into the ocean. It was wild and fun, but not a great health and safety day.

Still, it's an amazing place to photograph the sea. Waves rebound off the huge sea wall that runs out to the lighthouse there, and clash with the incoming seas. The result is a crazy maelstrom of salt water, wind and noise. I love it.
