Tides are high here in Co. Waterford these times. I could spend hours just watching the waves.
I took this photograph over the harbour wall out at Boat Strand yesterday morning. I must admit to feeling a little seasick as I look at it now even though I felt absolutely wonderful when I was actually there to witness the sea in all her glory.
How does it grab you?

Superb, Jean – did you suffer (get drenched) for your art? 😉
Hi Robin, managed to duck behind the harbour wall at the psychological moment.
Hope you’re well.
Fantastic, we had our storm in the middle of the night, so I missed the opportunity to get any photos like this!
Chris, it seems to be more high tides than storms here at the moment. Maybe the sea is all excited about ‘summer time.’
WoooHooo! Love it! I was born and raised in Halifax, which is a sheltered harbor. just west of Halifax is Peggy’s Cove which is a fully exposed tourist area with a light house.They close the road during storms because the waves are so high. The picture below was a storm in 2007.That wave is about 40 feet over the rocks and it is about 40 feet from the rocks to the sea – so you are looking at the top 40 feet of an 80 foot wave coming into the parking lot.
Paul, that’s a wave and a half ! Hard to even imagine how it must have been for those who were there. A tad scary, I’d say.
Pauls’ picture is awesome but scary. The ocean has many moods. Your picture reminds me of how our emotions run some remaining within while others disperse themselves into the air..Both are beautiful in their own right..
Joni, that’s a fascinating thought about emotions.
Yes, Paul’s photo is ‘awesome.’ Didn’t think I’d ever use that word but it seems perfect in this context.
Your photo of the crashing waves grabs me in the gut, in a visceral exciting spiritual sense. I get motion sick just standing on a dock, but how I love looking at the ocean. As you can tell from he top border of my blog, I equate life with the ocean, and the tides and the waves crashing and then lessening, until the next big crash. 🙂
Pam, I’m certainly with you about equating life with the ocean.
As for motion sickness, hubby gets it even watching water on tv!
It really grabs me Jean. I can smell it and feel it 😊
That’s the spirit, Val!
What a beautiful photo to open the week! Can’t wait to see your beautiful beach and county one day. You are a one-woman tourist bureau for county Waterford. I love the photos and reading your daily blog. You show all of us the beauty and inspiration that can be found in our own backyard.
Hi Susie, thanks so much for your lovely comment. Deeply appreciated. Hope you get to come here soon.
Great capture of the power of the waves Jean, reminds me of last weekend when I was watching waves crashing over the rocks just like this.
Hi Andrea, I must have taken about 50 shots. Couldn’t tear myself away. Guess you know the feeling.
It grabs me a LOT!! So beautiful!
Delighted to hear it, Luanne xx
Powerful yet serene, as most ocean photos tend to be. Such a range of thoughts and feelings..:)
George, the ocean must have more moods than us humans if that’s possible.
That’s a great description and very true.
Your love of it seems to be as deep as mine!
Beautiful shot Jean! When the waves crash like that it’s so exhilarating ❤
Thanks Jewels, it was great to be there in the middle of it all.
Low tide next week. Hopefully I have a chance to finally take a picture of that boat wreck.
Hope you get the right conditions, Inese.
0.3m is a low tide, I think it will work out if there is no storm, of course.
That should do the trick alright. Hopefully no significant storms looming.
Such magnificence, Jean! Those waves are beautiful as long as we keep our distance and our common sense. 🙂
Oh they are magnificent but have a power that one should never, ever underestimate.
Yes, well said! 😊
