Bad weather but a great catch on photo, this big wave as it hit the jetty.
Golden sky reflected beautifully on the wet promenade.
Fine taken the moment, superb diagonal POV.
Have a nice weekend,

Here in Ireland we are being battered by storms too, and I see many shots of big waves, but I have not seen any as beautiful as this. To get this combination of the crashing powerful water, as well as the architecture and the truly amazing colors in that sky is such a brilliant thing. The light in the sky looks almost as if it is coming from the belfry of that beautiful church.
An incredible composition, taken with perfect timing.
All the best

Une scène de tempête bien capturée avec de superbes reflets dorés sur le sol. Très jolie l'église dans le fond le POV est excellent. J'aime beaucoup!

Very interesting and attractive picture!
The details of those breaking waves are so eye-catching... very well seen and done!
Sharpness, exposure, colros, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

μια υπέροχη χειμωνιάτικη εικόνα, ένα συναρπαστικό θέαμα στην έρημη προκυμαία, μέσα στην καρδιά του χειμώνα. Η προοπτική και το βάθος είναι εξαιρετικά, μου αρέσει πολύ το καδράρισμα με τη σκούρα φυλλωσιά των πεύκων -δημιουργούν πολύ καλή αντίθεση και αναδεικνύουν τη ζοφερή λάμψη και τους ζεστούς τόνους που διαπερνούν τη συννεφιά. Μια δραματική και υποβλητική σκηνή. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατολύριακο,

il brutto tempo ha contagiato molti paesi e, purtroppo, sono molti i danni che sta facendo.
Questa foto è molto bella e ben ripresa, la forza del mare contrasta con la bellezza del momento, con i colori del cielo e il piacevole riflesso.

Beautiful Submit angry roaring of the sea. Nicely done.
Thanks for sharing

Your note is very remarkable because in Belgium this year so far we had no real winter weather. The temperatures have never been low and it hasn't snowed.
There has been a stormy night with damage to buildings in the coastal area. But generally considered, this is our mildest winter ever. So far ...
On the picture we can see clearly the wind speed on the water. Hopefully you could hide quickly enough behind the trees for those crashing waves.
Best regards, Paul

Bad weather indeed, great capture of these strong waves crashing down on the promenade in Volos.
Had to view your info, and saw it was only 10 ishh, when this was shot, it looks like a photo at dusk time with the light low sun and heavy clouds.
When is it going to end we are also being battered with strong wind and rain, river bursting their banks roads turning into rivers, poor Farmers crops being ruined.
Well managed and presented, great photo, trust you were not blown around too much.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-08 1:40
eccellente ripresa per il particolare effetto scenico che disegnano le onde del mare in tempesta.
Belli e delicati i colori ed eccellente la composizione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
mirosu (15126) 2014-02-08 2:32
Excellent photo, superb capturing of sea water bouncing on shore. The light and clarity is superb. Sometimes the bad weather photographs are the best.
Very well done.
rbassin (19451) 2014-02-08 2:46
Une très belle composition, la lumière est magnifique avec de bons reflets dorés sur la plage.
dkmurphys (51394) 2014-02-08 3:54
Bad but very spectacular weather. I like the pov with the church in the back. Well taken, enjoy the weekend.
timecapturer (49288) 2014-02-08 3:57
the waves are crashing on my hometown beach as I write this critique. With yet another storm battering the UK today. Volos is a place I know really well, but only on hot summer days of peace and warm tranquillity. This shot therefore is fascinating as much as it is alarming. A moment that you have captured superbly, with a real sense of the atmosphere and impact of the bad weather. Excellent!
Have a great weekend - B.

While the winter has been cold in some parts of the USA and in eastern Europe, we here in Central Europe haven't had a real winter until now. The temperatures have been much to warm for the season and we haven't even got snow this year. It looks a bit different on the south side of the alps, where they have unusually heavy snowfalls and snow up to 3 meters in the villages.
Now I wouldn't want to approach this raving waves to close, they look quite dangerous.
Have a great weekend
Sergiom (65153) 2014-02-08 6:18
La température n'est vraiment pas belle cet hiver en Europe, surtout en bord de mer. Les vagues sont très fortes et offrent tout un spectacle. Il ne faut pas avoir peur de se mouiller les pieds.
eldancer1 (30742) 2014-02-08 7:33
Seems like bad weather is all over the world, we had heavy cloud cover and some rain yesterday but that's nothing compared to some parts of the U.S. Awesome capture of those waves with nice details. Well done, tfs.
abmdsudi (45630) 2014-02-08 10:47
This is tremendous action shot well frozen showing the power of the ocean when blue suddenly turns to white wild pounding waves! The timing is precise and the waves create such a superb contrast against the surrounding and warm tones with lovely looking reflection on the pavement of the promenade. Awesome details too and finely exposed full of dynamic. Congrats.
saxo042 (37602) 2014-02-09 1:20
Very dramatic waves here but looking at the sky, the weather does not seem to be that dramatic. A very interesting capture of daily life with good view of the background buildings.
jcpix (13726) 2014-02-09 13:38
Indeed, there has been some very strong winter weather in the U.S. and Europe this year...although, where I live in Arizona we have seen nothing but sunny skies and warm temperatures, no negative effects at all!?
Your timing to catch these crashing waves depicts the power and force of the waters with an intensity which is apparently quite unusual. With a calm and serene sunset in the background, it's a clash of elements and atmosphere that combine wonderfully for an impactful visual. Good thing you were at a distance though. :) A beautiful shot despite the rough conditions. Wishing you a pleasant week ahead. Take care.
delpeoples (54425) 2014-02-10 1:31
Bellissima foto, di un momento veramente decisive. Adoro i toni gialli del cielo e quei argenti nello sfondo. I riflessi sono la ciliegina sulla torta.
Complimenti, ti auguro una bella serata
Nicou (127734) 2014-02-10 2:10
quel déchaînement de la mer sueprbe quelle grosses vagues qui se soulèvent sueprbe captage au très bon moment quelle force de l'eau splendide.
Bravo et amitié
Miguel82 (26198) 2014-02-10 5:42
Dear Constantino, this is a good report about the meteo conditions in Volos, rough sea indeed, a church and magnificent hues of the sunset in the bg, all the best, have a good start of week
Graal (99448) 2014-02-10 7:14
amazing view and shot like during the stormy weather. Good caught moment, attractive but dangerous wave. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.
Hansaphotos (7205) 2014-02-10 13:32
A picture with a lot of drama. Nicely framed shot with fine effect of the waves and the reflections in the wet ground. Nice composition with fine light and colours. Great work:) Thanks.
Have a nice week.
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2014-02-11 18:24
bad weather sometime be very fruitfull for photography. Here is the example of it. A very well composed photo with interesting natural beauty. Very good one. Tfs.
mcmtanyel (15547) 2014-02-12 12:00
Those are huge waves for the Aegean Sea. I like your POV that includes a handsome building (church?) on the far side of the bay. The reflections on the wet sidewalk are superb.
Fis2 (88763) 2014-02-12 13:26
Very impressive water effect.
jacquest (18869) 2014-02-12 14:54
The action of the waves is weel caught and stopped in time. The golden tones in the sky give a special mood and the small church adds an architectural element to the composition.
Cricri (110279) 2014-02-16 10:52
Les vagues donne un merveilleux spectacle a voir et a entendre, j'aime le POV, la lumière douce et les reflets sur le sol humide, très belle réalisation
macjake (59954) 2014-02-18 1:07
so you live around here :)
must be very nice!
but perhaps not on this day, as the winds are strong, blowing the sea water up against the walkway.
powerful image, wouldn't want to be any closer than this. Hope the weather is better now.
jmdias (58131) 2014-02-28 16:36
amazing moment, a curious mix of furious sea, golden light of the sunset and architecture. excellent timing and quality of image. TFS.
photoray (13182) 2014-03-10 11:39
Fine winter scene of the ocean's power with waves crashing over the walkway, and a distant view of the interesting gothic architecture.
Thanks for sharing,
worldcitizen (7423) 2015-06-14 16:34
I was looking through your gallery, and I like your two bad weather photos. The other one has a cyclist, which adds more life to the scene, but in this one we can see all the street lamps. It's interesting that the water splashes right onto the sidewalk. I like the lighting in the sky, too.
