Crantock Tempest - rev

When a low pressure weather front runs in off the Atlantic, the swell can be huge. Big rollers are forced up and they can overrun The Goose as they charge to the beach. Add a dramatic cloud base and 90mph winds, and you have the 'perfect storm'.

My eye was taken here by how the cloud pattern 'mirrored' the massive waves running into the bay, to create an elemental symmetry in my shot.

On this incredibly rough Sunday morning, the wind was absolutely pummelling Pentire Point East. It felt as though it was trying to suck the air from my lungs as I bent into it and made my way over the headland's crest. From the relative shelter of a rocky cleft, I watched as walkers out for a brisk 'stroll' were knocked off their feet by errant gusts.
