Last few from Garrettstown, apres soaking of both myself and several other unfortunates. These are a mish-mash of mostly massive waves and examples of a horribly filthy sensor paired with streaky, seawater spattered filter (as above).
… and some near misses, like getting back to the car fractions of a second before it was completely covered by several large waves.
Then things got a little too adventurous. You know things are going to end badly when you start following steps down to the beach armed with a 10mm lens. Thankfully, I didn’t get too far down toward the sand before the waves had me flying back up the steps.
Not so much brave as morbidly stupid. Gave up on that idea for the good of my camera and retreated back to the relative safety of the beach.
