Throwback Thursday travels back to North Wales about 30 years ago. The Great Orme is a limestone headland on the coast of North Wales.
A storm was causing waves to break over the sea wall. I was photographing the breaking waves while trying to watch out for any waves that were going to soak me and the camera. As it’s the Irish Sea it’s salt water which is a lot worse for camera equipment than fresh water.
This shot was taken on the south west side of the Great Orme looking north.
Saturday morning of week 42 saw me on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. After several days of strong winds there was some serious waves hitting the shoreline.
They were breaking over rocks surrounding the flagpole at the bottom of High Street in Southampton, the spray hit me a couple of times. I was quite surprised how rough Lake Huron was, I had been down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise a few hours earlier and the bay was calmer than I expected given the wind.
In the photo you can see Chantry Island and it’s lighthouse on the horizon left of center.
Saturday morning of week 38 saw me on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. There had been strong winds on Friday and overnight which caused the waves to come crashing onto the shoreline. I was at the flagpole at the bottom of High Street in Southampton and the waves were breaking on the rocks surrounding the flagpole.
The deep blue sky and fluffy white clouds were a big change from the weather the previous day and early Saturday morning. Chantry Island and it’s lighthouse is on the horizon.
