Early in the morning, the storm surge had swept through North Berwick harbour, causing £500,000 worth of damage. In the process it shifted a 40 foot container that had ben put in the dinghy park the previous night. It swept through the boats and broke through the barrier and dropped into the main harbour, swirling round and causing even more damage. My dinghy was originally 5m long, but the front was snapped off & it finished up 3m in length. Luckily the insurance paid up. See: It Broke my Boat - 2

The seas around the Bass Rock are pretty fearsome at the best of times but this is a wonderful picture of angry seas around this iconic island. The stalwart (Stevenson's) lighthouse is well seen as are the brutal waves heading to shore.
A fabulous photograph with lots of action and movement and a fine documentary photograph too. But what a shame such damage was caused - though I'm pleased your insurance paid up for your own dinghy.
Have a Wonderful 2013!

well, you have such a fairy tale name :-).
I love your picture of the roaring sea. It expresses all the power of the element, you have great timing to catch the top of the wave. I wish to be there and see it.
Sorry for your boat.
Best regards from the Czech Rep.

A stunning shot, you have caught the sea at a great moment, the size of the waves as they crash down is amazing. But although it is a great shot it can'nt relace your boat.
