White capped beautiful wave.

White Capped Beauties

Waves can be mesmerizing when you stand on a pier and watch them rolling in. They shift their shapes but are so very similar. The glassy colors have much appeal, the foam crowns seem solid for a moment, but then they just flatten out and become a net of foam lying on the surface of the water until the waves rush to shore and dissipate. The water diamonds sparkle only in the winter when the sun is at a low angle.

I have taken most of these wave pictures from a pier. Waves are never huge where we are, but they can pack quite a punch. There is not much to add to the visuals, so I recommend that you look at the Slide Show to see those images. If you have your Java Script turned off, you can scroll down this page and click on the individual picture that you wish to see enlarged.
