The power of the sea - storm Ophelia hitting Porthleven

With the storm season now upon us and rougher weather on the way, this month’s POTM had to be ‘Power of the sea – Storm Ophelia hitting Porthleven’


From the hundreds of shots I took that day of huge waves crashing over the church tower at Porthleven, this was the only painting I did from that day to date . .
I was perched on a cliff to get the best vantage point of the church, when this wave caught my eye out at sea.  It built substantially on its approach and by the time it hit the breakwater and cliff it was massive!  The subsequent wash and spray absolutely soaked all the photographers perched on the cliff – scary – hence the title . . . .


The tail end of ‘hurricane’ Ophelia hits the Cornish coast. Of all the photo’s I took of the tower at Porthleven getting swamped by huge waves, this massive wave building off the pier caught my eye. Huge!
