Storm surf in Newquay at high tide
Britain was battered by the largest waves currently being generated anywhere in the world today, and looking at my local beaches this morning I could see that, yep, there were pretty big waves coming through. Here are some shots from a 90 minute shoot this morning in Newquay, Cornwall.
The blowhole sequence was taken looking over Porth Beach to Porth Island (aka Trevelgue Head, an Iron-age coastal fort of national importance). It’s such a thrill to see this in action. In fact you don’t see it, you hear and feel it. Even from 2-or 3-hundred metres away the “whump” from the explosion of the wave as it exits is something else.
