The waves are really crashing this morning! Zoom into this picture to see the great crash I caught.
I think the waves are the prettiest when the sun just starts to light up the first white crests. It’s such a stark contrast with the dark ocean behind it. I’m standing on the beach so I’m really not high enough to do it justice.
From Wikipedia: Spindrift usually refers to spray, particularly to the spray blown from cresting waves during a gale. This spray, which “drifts” in the direction of the gale, is one of the characteristics of a wind speed of 8 Beaufort and higher at sea….Force 8, defined as “Gale”. Wind speed 39-46 mph, equal to 34-40 knots.
That’s a little better.
