Before The Storm


Carcavelos Beach

This shot was NOT taken today. Today the weather is awful, there are giant waves, floods everywhere, very strong winds, it's snowing up north and this is what we might expect over the next few days: Atlantic Code Red Incoming

That is a scary scenario indeed, JM! I surely shouldn't complain about our gray cold weather -- it isn't stormy and dangerous like yours. Do keep us updated! I'll be holding good thoughts!

Sharon said...

It's probably a much scarier scene today. I looked at that storm map and it's heading right toward you.

Shaun Gibbs said...

I know how you feel JM, we are being hammered with weather here in the UK too.
Be safe !

I doesn't look good!

Buen fin de semana.

Perhaps you should take cover and hunker down for awhile. We've had unusually cold weather and lots of rain but nothing like what you're going through. This is a powerful photograph expressing the power of Mother Nature!

Love stormy skies.

Beautiful shot, but having all those arrows pointed at you is bad news. Stay safe and warm!

Mersad said...

Those big clouds rolling by are really a powerful part of this image I like it a lot and especially the light. Thank you for sharing with us.

It is a great photo, JM. I clicked on the link and am shocked at the storm system that is approaching Europe. Be safe!

Winslow Homer, spot on.

This shot has wonderful power.

I'm sorry your weather is so awful. Please stay warm and dry.

Randy said...

Beautiful shot. Stay safe.

Que luz maravilhosa, foto perfeita!
Pegamos muita chuva nessas andanças durante Natal e mais ainda no UK durante a virada do ano. Como voltamos com a balsa, eu fiquei muito preocupada, mas tudo correu bem. Tempo maluco esse! E ainda espero ver algum sinal de sol e quem sabe neve por aqui! :)
Abraços

Epic image! We are having one of the warmest and most mild winters I've ever experienced out here. Our surf is flat and no skiing locally. But, I wouldn't wish such powerful storms as you experienced on any coast. Hopefully, all residents and travelers are safe.

Very dramatic!
