The Wild Roker

Greetings followers... I made the trip to my local coast at Roker, Sunderland to catch the last of the UK Storm "The Beast From The East" aka "Storm Emma". I have never done a high tide waves shot before so i grasped the chance whilst i could.

The waves were'nt as violent as i thought they may be, but there was enough drama in the waves to bring many people including fellow photographers to the pier to catch that dramatic wave shot over the pier. The car park near the front was closed off as the waves flooded the area, which also brought debris with it. The waves bashing its way through also caused a huge amount of spray with it, making it difficult to shoot.

I was pleased i brought my long lens instead of my wide angle as i was away back and managed to zoom in on the pier and the waves as they thrashed their way over the pier and lighthouse. As i said earlier they were'nt as dramatic as the day before but dramatic enough to get some decent photos from it.

I'm pleased "The Beast From The East" is over with and perhaps we can start looking forward to our eagerly awaited Spring to start in full swing, leading to the long awaited return of the sunny days and summer nights.

Enjoy and thanks for taking the time to read and follow my webpage blog, feedback and comments always WELCOME.
