Rough Seas


Yesterday morning the sun decided to shine for a few hours after a rainy week and a gale force wind on Friday and Saturday. I took the opportunity to test out the christmas and graduation present that my hubby bought for me - a professional Canon. I admit I'm still green but I'm working on it. I stopped my car near the abandoned Jerma hotel and took photos of rough seas pounding on the shore close to the hotel. It was such a weird situation .. with the eerily silent hotel behind me and the booming sound of the crashing waves in front of me. It was a sure scary sight to watch all those waves crashing and pounding on the rocks very close to where I stood.

Seas, especially rough ones, make a terrific subject, though it can be tough to get the exposure right. You're off to a great start, enjoy your new present!
