Nazare' was a fishermen's village that evolved to a resort town .
On it's north side there is a huge cliff like a natural wall ( I'll post more photos with a wider view of this cliff) – and here is the tip of it as it is "falling" to sea.
This picture was taken with a zoom extract , as the swell heat.
On the WS attached , there is: 1) A view of the swell taken from the cliff's highr ground.
2) A picture of the ridge's cliif .

A really wonderful composition, fantastic reflexes to catch the wave when it breaks on the rocks.
Very nice light and color beautifully, especially in this tone so beautiful the sea.

The capture of the power of the sea is an asset to the composition. The point of is showing the details and colors of the rocks and of the sea. the late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.

very dynamic shot of wild wave and rocks,
white splash of water and blue sea and sky are beautiful,
and rough and hard rocks look so stable against natural invasion of waves,
a decisive moment is well captured,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hello Ike, This is striking view of the water roaring over this rock. Beautiful colors with the green blue water in the foreground and the two massive rocks with varied colors. Superior composition with a great POV . Very well done. Regards, Roger

This impressive seaside drama is well framed!
The moment is just right as the wave hits the rock, and the scene is nicely frozen...
Well done in capturing the force of nature like this!

notevole la resa della schiuma del mare con l'acqua che si infrange sullo scoglio.
Ottimi i colori con un verde smeraldo di grande bellezza.
ottimo il POV,
snunney (67346) 2010-10-21 2:06
A composition that clearly demonstrates the power of the sea. Captured at just the right moment as the waves crash against the rock. I like the turquoise tones of the sea and the contrast they make with the pale blue sky.

Wonderful, wild sea. These waves crashing on the steep cliffs are amazing. Beautiful color photographs. Excellent colors.
ערב טוב. "המפואר, ים מטורפים. אלו הגלים המתנפצים על הצוקים התלולים הם מדהים ומסוכן. יפה תצלומי צבע. מעולה צבעים. בברכה.

Powerful picture to show how the mighty Atlantic Ocean crashes on the Portuguese coastline.
Very beautiful blue tones of the water on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul

Merveilleuse prise de vue et je crois que ce n'est pas le temps de partir en bateau pour la pęche. Les rochers sont magnifiques et le spectacle de toute beauté bien capté juste au bon moment avec la vigilance du photographe. J'adore les couleurs de la mer.
Bravo!... et bonne soirée,
diomed (13926) 2010-10-21 15:20
an image very strong that means the force of the sea and that is captured in a very decisive moment. Smply beautiful!
Selmik (2863) 2010-10-21 19:35
Good evening Ike,
beautiful marine scene with low POV, right timing to catch the wave. Almost feeling the power and freshness of the episode. If not your sign on the photograph could not ever imagine that it was taken in October.
clic (11017) 2010-10-22 8:58
Sorry for my delay, Ike......connection problems on TE.
That's what I call VIVID waters!
And I can predict the destruction of this surfacing boulder in a few centuries!
Fine depiction of fury with diffused light on this "action" shot!
jemaflor (68943) 2010-10-22 10:39
great result with a perfect timing, very strong and impressive wave on the rock, good pov and nice blue sea.
paninho (2931) 2010-10-23 2:24
Magnifique et puissante photo, prise exactement au bon moment! Bravo!
Ricx (13435) 2010-10-25 8:46
Hi Ike, wow - what a beautiful and wonderful rock- I enjoy seascapes like this and could spend hours trying to get the "perfect" shot.. good deep colours.. well done Rich
eldancer1 (17064) 2010-10-25 9:47
It's so overwhelming and I'm glad I'm just watching the power of the ocean in your beautiful photo. So much action in this shot, I hope you were standing on a solid ground. Great pov and dof with nice colors. Well done, tfs.
Kielia (20463) 2010-10-27 9:46
really a very well composed and great impression of this well known place. The colors and the overall aura are fascinating. It is this amazing wave that makes the image very attractive. TFS!
jmdias (45804) 2010-11-01 17:24
nice view of this strong wave, hiting the rocks. the violence od this impact and the sense of movement are perfectly shown here. good colors and light
Tukan-T5 (4317) 2010-11-07 1:46
even without the storm, it looks scary.
But the beautiful cliff, actually.
Best maritime mood.
Have a great Sunday Tomas

Hi dear Ike
I love the wild beauty of this photo. The power of the sea, the rugged rock, the excellent POV and the vivid colours combine so well. Great job, thanks for sharing,
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2012-02-27 9:46
perfect timing to capture these waves crashing the big rock producing a smoke like effect. The turquoise colored water makes a nice contrast with the pale blue sky. The sharpness and lighting are perfect.

It sounds almost Nazareth. Good capture of the water expression. I think this is one the best your photos from Portugal.
