These were taken at Botanical beach on Vancouver Island. Normally there are tide pools to explore, but Yesterday it was not a very nice day to be down there. This was some of the most extreme conditions Ive shot in so far, crazy wind, sun, clouds, rain, sea salt spray, foam floating through the air everywhere, and really cold temperatures. The light was constantly changing, going from sun to overcast. The lens was covered in salt droplets within a few seconds, and the micro fiber cloth did nothing but smear it around!, and to top it all off it was the first time Ive ever used a N.D Filter, and I went way Overboard, so everything is underexposed!!!
but here they are anyway

Thanks! It was really something to see, the waves where huge. It was surprising how many photographers were there as well.

All wonderful shots showing some raw power of the ocean Jude. Just love the comp. of shot #6 especially though.

Jude - you may have gone through it, but you walked away with some lovely images! Thanks for taking the effort to capture them and sharing them here too!

Cool set Jude! I favour shot 5 here for the comp and mood....though I think some highlight dodging/levels play could make it sing even louder.
