This is the sequel to my previous image as Sandy encroached our shores. Only carrying one lens, my 18-105mm I was unable to capture the feel of the sea coming over the wall in the previous image where I was standing. Salt spray, squall type rain, and wind played havoc with my gear. I then positioned myself as close to the end of the jetty to get a better view of the cascading water along with the cooperation of available light. I never did pay attention to the reflect- ing shadows from the railings as I was too concerned with the potential from water damage.
