Breaking waves on Penzance Promenade

20140101-202642.jpg

The sea was rough earlier on today, with huge waves breaking on the sea defences below Penzance Promenade. At high tide, spray was thrown ten metres or more into the air.

I managed to capture this photo on my iPhone as we sheltered from a shower by Gino’s restaurant next to the Queens Hotel. There were much bigger waves, but since I value my phone, after capturing a quick video with Vine, I opted to enjoy the waves and keep my phone dry in my pocket.

Digging for Bait, Swansea Bay

I often see silhouetted figures out on the edge of the tide digging for bait, toiling away filling buckets of ragworms and lugworms. I’m glad that I was able to capture this image, my first with a telephoto lens (Canon FD 70-210mm) – I like the bands of colour and the tiny contrast of the yellow bucket in the centre of the frame.

Taken a few weeks ago, the crescent moon set all the way to the horizon. Here is a view of it looking across Swansea Bay towards Mumbles. I’m glad that I had my camera handy.
