Winter's back

Sea Promenade (Santo Amaro-Paço de Arcos)
After some great days of sunshine and clear blue sky, this is what we have now...

That's a rather peevish sea you've caught there, restless and agitated. And what a stormy light. Hope the sun returns soon.

Winter never gives up without a fight.

I love the sea!! But in winter it "gives" amazing photos!!

It's a pity, I'm also little tired about winter, and sunny days are welcome always!
Anyway it brings a beautiful spot and picture! :)
Well done

A well placed sea wall protects from and accents the fury of the sea.

Oh no!!! We are having Springlike weather here. Which means lots of rain but the temps are mild.
The ocean is beautiful though. MB

Really different sky than yesterday's!

Dina said...

Looks like those waves really pack a wallop.
Do the people get splashed?

Lois said...

I would not want to walking along there with all those waves!

I think the days with warm sunshine in between the clouds and cold make winter more interesting. I appreciate the sunshine more after a few days without it.

Nice capture. You can definitely feel the force and fury of those waves. Looking forward to a little spring sunshine though.

Umm, Jose'! You can NOT call that winter! No snow, no ice, no "cold" - maybe you could call it a "late Autumn" or "early Spring?!"

It looks a bit scary with this weather, but it is a beautiful promenade. I like Leif's comment...

Mirela said...

I still find it very inviting...

Jacob said...

Sure does make for a beautiful photograph, though! And, as we say in Florida, if you don't like the weather, wait a minute or two, it will change!

Irina said...

But it is so beautiful! And I hope sun will win soon.

Anya said...

Love the sea also in the winter

Beautiful photo JM but comparing with this part of Europe it's rather spring:)

It looks that way! A lot of drama. It's finally getting colder here..normally your photos are of blue blue skies!
(btw)..I got rejected for the CDP- ha. I think it was me putting my small town verses city..then I couldn't seem to change it or their minds. Still, I'm probably not in that big o'l city of mine enough..then how can I resist doing a series? thanks anyway-

Babzy said...

Not so bad ;)

Joan Elizabeth said...

Mmm that looks like an angry sea ... maybe it's fed up with winter too.
