I popped down to the South Gare Breakwater last Saturday as the forecast hinted (a Force Eight Gale) that mother nature may put on quite a spectacular show..and she did :D

40mph winds, -8 windchill & very violent seas...serious fun!

The 1st four shots are of waves pounding the lighthouse & the last two are of the Thea B pitching violently leaving the Teesport entrance

I also got a few shots of 2 lifeboats towing a stricken training vessel (engine & steering broke) into Teesport after a 30 mile journey through very heavy seas

These are cool. You must have been struggling to stay upright as you snapped these. Nice captures.
