I must go down to the sea again

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is ............to be able to enjoy it from terra firma, because that way I do not have to endure getting sea sick or getting covered in spray.

Apologies to John Masefield, and I do enjoy the sea but when I go there it must be on my terms.

These pictures were taken on the wild side at Cape St Francis, on a day when the sea was not too rough and the sun was at the right position to bring out the different shades of blue and green.

 I stood on the shore, like the good land lubber I am, and just fired away as the waves came rolling in.



Exploding wave................it might not be rough but there was enough power in the waves for some spectacular effects.



 

I love the colours in the swirling foam and water.......




That's how I like the sea. Close enough to enjoy it but not close enough to get wet, with both feet on solid ground.

What a show,
and all without getting seasick or wet!
Ain't the sea generous?
Cheers,

Oh, these are breathtaking captures, Max! I love the water and love to watch it when it is like this! I don't live as close to the water as I did at one time and your photos brought back so many beautiful memories! Thanks for sharing!! Hope your weekend is going well!
