January Storms at West Bay

Today is beautifully sunny here in West Dorset. The wind is calm and the seas tranquil. But this wasn’t the case last week. Not being a suicidal fool1 I avoided the worst of the weather and stayed tucked up at home. However I did venture out to catch some of the last windy weather at West Bay.

The sea made for a tricky subject on that day. This was partly down to all the salt water spray being thrown at my lenses. The bigger issue was the position of the sun making it hard to shoot towards the open sea. I did get a few shots I like though.

1You know, those twits you hear about on the news that tend to jump in a river or the sea to save their dog. The person usually dies and the story is ended with “the dog survived climbing out of the water itself.”
