New on 500px : swirly seal by dittto by dittto

My girlfriend and I met up with some friends for a week long photo excursion around Oregon for spring 2015. Out of the many many trips I’ve made to the Oregon Coast, I’ve never had such great displays of light..never really had any displays except for some dense fog! This one from Seal Rocks was not the best display we had that week but a lot of elements came together nicely. A big thanks to my friends that made the journey and brought their good luck charms for some good sunset shows.

The water level of River Rhine is that low that you see sandbanks and freightships can only transport half the load. The main fairway is behind the island but even there the water level is reaching historic low level via Tumblr

The last weeks have been without any rain and hardly any wind. A very unusual autumn so far. The sunsets have been many and all very different, but will it last? This evening is one of the most wonderful so far, with the entire sky filled with light clouds that glow warm. The calm sea seems warm and inviting due to the reflections of the warm colors of the clouds. via Tumblr

This kind of weather was expected already in the early afternoon, and wind was just stronger and stronger as sunset was coming. In the end it was almost not possible to stand still… Big waves crushing on curved stone pier, Saint Malo, France. via Tumblr

New on 500px : Evening Shallow-Water Waves III by shiggernackihoo by shiggernackihoo

The waves came from the right to the left shore. I took the first photo (II) from the point at right angles (90 degrees) to the tide direction, and in next few photos I walked gradually to the left so that finally I would stand on the point just front of the coming waves. There I could not see the special shallow-water wave patterns but just horizontal wave lines.

The sea here is shallow off the shore, that is, shallow to a considerable distance from the shore. And in such shallow water, the waves make beautiful and complex patterns and many people have been interested in its pattern making mechanism. Therefore there are many various-level documents about the shallow-water wave patterns. For example, via Tumblr
