Monster wave

I've always wanted to photograph Porthcawl during a storm. It's the picture that all media outlets use whenever Britain gets hit by powerful storms. Last year I braved the wind and rain to finally get some shots of the monster waves. My pictures were picked up by the BBC and the Met Office to urge people on the coast to be safe. If my image prevented someone getting hurt then that makes me proud. This image was taken with a 400mm telephoto lens, so I could be tucked away safely from the elements. A fast shutter speed to freeze the wave exactly as it's seen.
