The Cobb, Lyme Regis being battered by heavy seas. Nikon D700 & 80-200mm lens.
November 2009 has been a wild month for weather in the UK. High winds, frequent and heavy spells of rain interspersed with some clear sunny spells, great for dramatic pictures of stormy seas lashing the coast.
Dorset is blessed with great locations for capturing these events. Lyme Regis, Portland Bill, West Bay all give the photographer, who is willing to risk his expensive camera equipment getting a soaking, the chance to capture images showing the power of the sea trying its hardest to destroy what man has put in its way. But respect has to be given to mother nature as the devastation in Cumbria from the heaviest rainfall ever recorded in the UK shows, by keeping a safe distance and not taking risks which could put the emergency services in danger if you get into trouble.
