    Oh wow look at those clouds, there is real great energy in this photo. I bet the wind was so powerful whilst taking this.

    Great shot I love it.

  • Your not wrong the wind was howling and the storm was one of the most violent I have ever seen. Thanks for your comments

    Great menacing sky! Terrific perspective! Excellent shot, Andrew!!

  • The sky look EVIL, thats the best way I could describe it, but then the storm was EVIL as well. Anyone in Newcastle can testify to that.
    Thanks for your comments

    This is an amazing shot Andrew – well done.

  • Glad you like it Paul. I had water up to my knees to catch this image. which considering the surf that day was a bit silly. I have several other images of the Pasha from that day which may give you an idea of their size.

    Great f/ground inclusion of the waves leading to the ship,the sky looks threatening

  • It was very cold to get the forgroundin this image i can tell you. The storm was unlike any i have been through and the clouds the following morning still looked threatening.

    Amazing power in the sea – especially when you consider the magnitude of this vessel. So I have to ask, what was the outcome of all this?

  • Thanks Wendi. After about 2 -3 months the ship was finally dragged back to sea. For that time and especially the days of the storm, the ship was a crowd pleaser. The storm that beached it was one of the best/ worst I have EVER seen.
