Nor'Easter in 10 days in this area.I made a 2Ft. x 4.5 ft of my best wave shot.A local seaside restaurant is interested in obtaining the mural.I'm hunkering down for tomorrow.----charliezap

Hi
The first image in this post is the money shot, I am envious.
Don't change anything it is perfect. Don't try to make it more dramatic and be tempted to change colours, it is perfect the way it is. The format suits it perfectly as well.

This is proof, photography is often more rewarding when the weather is bad.

Cheers

Thanks all. At present we are in the thick of a blizzard--Winter Storm Skylar with plenty more hours left to go.--charliezap

Outstanding photographs, Capn!!! Really impressive.

You guys have had a rough winter. My daughter, who lives in Enfield Connecticut but is a prof at Westfield State, is more than ready for spring.

Are you taking (or have taken) your usual trip to Florida this year?

It is now changing to heavy wet snow and I am pooped from trying to shovel often so there is less to deal with at one time. I just don't think I want to shovel every few hours for the next 15 while it continues to snow. Maybe a kind neighbor will run his plow through my driveway in the morning. Currently Maine is closed and has been since noon.
