the sea

little fury

little fury


the edge of the raging sea

heaving forth
heaving forth

watching the waves


rearing surge
confused sea
rough edge

noyo headlands
aft sails

storm surf

winter surf at McKerricher cove

surf beyond the headlands

 

these wave photographs are all taken on the Mendocino Coast of California when big swells arrive from the gulf of Alaska. Some of the waves are twenty feet tall, others are the beachbreak inside a protected cove and are just a few feet tall.

the sails are of the Rbt. Seamans, a 140 ft brigantine, taken from the yardarm in calm weather in the Pacific
