What better way to start the year! A new Picture of the Month for January:
(Click the thumbnail to see the image in the gallery)
This was the scene as huge Pacific Ocean waves crashed into the Monterey coast of California to see in 2010, as witnessed by one brave soul who has clambered out onto the adjoining rocky outcrop from the one I’m taking this picture from.
The waves were enormous and I have many spectacular pictures with towering mountains of sea and violent explosions of foam over rock, but the relative calm in his image seemed to convey the feeling of place and light best. (Although you can still see the water is turbulent – almost boiling!)
It just would not be New Year for me without the sight and sound of the ocean. I hope 2010 will be a healthy and prosperous one for you.
