    Looks like wide angle creating Tower of Pisa effect

    Just looks photoshopped to me. I was there that day and have my own collection of monster wave shots, none of them have the superimposed look and surrounding fuzziness of this image. That said, it is an attractive image.

    what a bitter comment Benjamin - there's nothing wrong with a bit of photoshop in my book ;)

    I have stood at a spot neat to this one many years ago during a similar storm ravaged Bristol Channel and believe me the feeling was of excitement, exhilaration and fear.

    I remember it to this day even though it must have been nearly 50 years ago.
