Waves Breach the Jetty From High Surf.

Newer Older

LOOK OUT!!, brain cells were running a tad low today as the waves breached the jetty. Fortunately no one was injured.

    Great shot Kevin. It needs to be in the newspaper. The Coast Guard would probably like it for their safety training.

    Man Kevin you got that right... they were not using their brains at all. Great shot.

    Terrific shot, Kevin. Shows how fascinating the water can be that people just don't realize the danger they are in. Wow!

    This really shows how big those waves were. You got a great photo, Kevin. Those people are sure not very bright. They surely got soaked. What an action photo.

    Super shot. I am amazed that more people do not get injured.

    Wow. That's the kind of photo you see on the front page of a newspaper with headline "Three people swept out to Sea". Glad no one was hurt.

    What I like about the shot Kevin is you were positioned to put the people at ground level and show how really insignificant (in size only) they are compared to the waves. Crisply detailed, thanks for sharing!

    This is such a great shot. It must have been amazing to be there and see this happening.

    Wow, what a dramatic shot. Amazing no one got hurt!

    That is amazing, those people are lucky! One time a wave came over the jetty and soaked me, but my camera was saved because I wrapped my arms around it and protected it with my body like it was a baby!!!

    How does that song go, "God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy." Spectacular wave and image and I'm glad nobody got hurt.... they probably got a good shower though...
