Monochrome Madness – The roar of the ocean

I have shown this image before. I don’t know when, but I was going through photos looking for something else and I came across this. It is one of my favourite images that I have taken of the ocean.

It reminds me of that scene in Lord of the Rings – Fellowship of the Ring when Arwen is crossing the river with Frodo on the horse and the the Nazgûl are chasing them. Arwen says something in elvish and the water comes roaring down the river. Then as those waves, if you can call them that, get closer they turn into horses made from the water. I think it is a powerful scene and this image makes me think those waves could turn into something soon too.

The spindrift coming off the top of them helps make them look powerful too.

So no theme this week and I think it is my turn next week. I will announce on the Monochrome Madness page what it will be on the weekend.

  1. I remember that scene and can see how you image reflects it. I love taking photographs of the sea, always searching for that perfect one. Yours is magnificent.

    1. Glad you can see it as well RJ, I think of it every time I see this image. I know what you mean, the sea is a magical place. Thank you so much.

    1. Thanks John, yeah it is just after 1pm here, on Wednesday. So we are about 18 hours ahead. or we are 6 hours behind but the next day.

    2. That’s crazy isn’t it! I love stuff like this. Many Americans want to end the daylight saving time. It serves no purpose now other than to irritate people. 😒

    3. It’s ridiculous! I’ve heard that this has to do with World War Two somehow. Regardless, it needs to end. It’s still beer O’Clock here. 😂🍻

    4. I don’t know about that, but I think it started here so people could go to the beach after work, so they would have more daylight hours at the end of the day.

    5. I am, well a citizen and was born here, but I live in Melbourne now, but growing up I live about 5 hours inland. So a long way from the coast.

    6. No need to be sorry, more me not explaining myself well. Here all our major cities on coasts, so if you grow up away from the coast we say country, so I grew up in the country, as opposed to the city or the coast.
