Angry sea at New Brighton. 1

Please chose your favorite of the 3.

A very difficult year for Me and very little time for my Passion of photography...However during the Christmas break after studying the weather maps I noticed there were some strong winds up by Liverpool . It was a bit hit and miss due to the fact that the wind appeared to be going along the coast so was not sure if there would be any nice big waves. There was a very high tide and I decided to take the risk and travel up there. As soon as I arrived there were BIG waves crashing over the front so I parked up, puled on some Welles and armed with tripod and camera trotted of to the shoreline and the lighthouse. The wind was bitterly cold and after about 10 minuets I had to warm them up in the car . I spent about Two and a half hours there wading up to knee deep ( Wellys had long ago filed up with water ? ) To get that perfect shot when the sun very occasionally came out ......Well worth freezing my soggy bits of for !

    i wanted to comment the into the light photo but flickr just wont let me open it.
    Not that this is not a good photo, that lighthouse really stands out of the frame and the rough weather makes it more dramatic !

    All of these are beautiful, however, that big crashing wave is what draws me to this one.
