After exploring the causeway, Front street and the Landing, I made my way to a favorite spot on Surf Street looking down at the small cove bordered by Flirtation Rock and Bass Rock. This is a great vantage point for watching waves crashing against the sea wall and I took plenty of shots of that.

However, as I watched one wave recede from the wall and meet another oncoming wave, the sheer power of the two met in the middle to create explosions of water. The small cove seemed to come to life with these dancing waves that reached incredible heights above the surface. With this shot, the waves had reached their peak height while the structure of the clouds was illuminated by diffused sunlight.

From the bit of water still falling from the sea wall to the distant explosion of crashing waves and the hint of Flirtation Rock seen in the middle, this became an instant favorite image of the storm.
