Stormy weather…

Down at Portobello this afternoon, grey, windy, stormy, high tide being pushed even more by the wind, causing the waves to smash into the sea wall with mighty booms, like roaring thunder…

And then often hitting the sea wall with such energy it was forced up and along, fountaining upwards to rise up and over then splash down onto the promenade

While people were enjoying watching it splash up and over, although they would then dart backwards with delighted shrieks

Naturally I used the bigger zoom on my new camera to take these – I wasn’t getting that close!!
