We've been having extreme weather conditions this weekend. Gale force winds, waves up to 25-30 meters and extreme high tide levels. The peak of the storm hit further north on the west coast, but we also felt it here.
On Sunday afternoon we went for a drive to see if we could catch some good waves. The wind was north-westerly, and the bridge to Brandasund has a clear view in that direction. The wind turned out to be so strong that it was impossible stand up, much less hold the camera still, and the lens was covered with salt in seconds (I have a filter!). So I ended up staying in the car, quickly cracked the window, steadied the camera against it and shot. Of almost a hundred pictures, only a very few were in focus.
To give an idea of the height of that spray, the lighthouse is probably 8-10 meters high, and the cliff it's on is probably a little less.
Please enlarge for a better view.
Monday afternoon the wind had died down,
and I went back to the same spot,
just to get an "after" shot.
Always fun to compare.
