wouldn`t want to be in the sea with those waves coming towards me ! great shot but I think I would like it even more with the bit of sand cropped off

Thanks Debz.  I left in the sand because it seemed to emphasise how close  the waves were in relation to the beach.

Goodness me, that's not a wave that's a Tsunami!

Lovely colours captured and the atmosphere has remained, which sometimes, is difficult.

Well done.

I wonder which adjective will do justice to describe this - I'll settle for stunning! "Liked"

Perfectly timed shot from a great vantage point Jacquie. Stunning use of light and shade. The colours and clarity of detail are second to none. Has to be viewed larger. I can almost smell the salty air. So dramatic and atmospheric. I hope I don't put a dampener on this but hope its in the top 3.

All the best.

Caught my eye straight away. A winner if ever I have seen one, and fits the theme very well.

I think all of the previous comments have said it all already, but hey, a good shot is a good shot, and this is definitely one of them.  Oh, and it is definitely extreme too!

Well done and good luck.

Having surfed most of my life i have never seen such a break so close to the beach and as a surfer i wouldnt be in that trough, the rip would be huge. Great capture and BOL

This is perfect for the Extreme theme, the colour that shines through the breaking waves is awesome, as is the mist crowning the crashing waves, a wonderful composition, the very best of luck with this one.

Remarkable shot. I like the sand too as the proximity to the beach is all important to lend scale to the waves. Very well taken and extreme to the nth degree. Must be a very strong contender..........good luck

A brilliant well timed capture Jacquie, those waves are awesome,making the surfer look tiny in the water,  we will be down in Porthcurno next week, will have to be down there a long time hoping to get a shot like this one.

Well done and Good Luck, congatulations in making the scroller
