...but especially the big stormy seas we can get here on the west coast. Unfortunately, living 30 miles inland I don’t get to the sea all that often, but when I do I make sure I have a camera. With a big mid-Atlantic storm raging, the weather forecasters are predicting a huge swell to hit the shore over the weekend with waves of up to 50 feet high. So I’ll definitely try to make it to Strandhill for their arrival. Even in calmer weather Strandhill is often stunning and if you’re there around sunrise or sunset the colours can be amazing. These pictures are from two different visits this year, while the black & white at the top of the page was taken on Hallowe’en 2006 and is a favourite.
While I’m at it, here’s an East coast scene, from Newcastle in Wicklow. With a bit of luck I might have some big rollers to post on Monday.
