On the way from Beirut Airport going Home, I asked the Taxi driver to stop me by that place for few minutes after seeing it from the main beach Highway… took many quick photos and was charged extra money for keeping him waiting:) (didn’t matter) coz I think One of the most spectacular views is when you see strong waves trying to rise above any blockage and it gets better with the sound just like an explosion made of nature!

On the beach side in Lebanon! Tempestuous weather and expressive nature!

Hope you like it and thx for stopping by:)

Hello Suzy.
Wowow indeed an explosion of water.! Sky High.!
Good colours in the sky too.
For a better composition (1/3-2/3) imo, cropp off a 2cm from the top.
What time it took you from the airport to your home ?
Are you passing the ruin from the Castle, ones I uploaded here ?
Have a nice weekend.
Ciao, Jan

Hi Suzy,
Wow, that was a perfect timing to take this photo, you captured the moment of this high wave very well. I know how difficult it is, because I tried to capture geyser eruptions several times. :)
Great beach scene and good titles. Keep up this nice work! TFS.
Best regards,

What a super wave formation Suzy. I've never seen any wave breaking like this before - it is amazing how it sprays up so high like this.
Yes, it was worth paying the extra money to take this photo.
Good one

HI Susy
The extra cab fare was worth it as you got to see and capture wonderful scenery.
I think getting rid of the dark cloud would enhance the shot even more. You did a great job with the shot.

Hi Suzy

marvelous tones.
good pov.
great shot, clear and sharp.

Hi Suzy

This one caught my eye. Good sharpness, & a superb decisive moment shot of the breaking wave at its zenith. Perhaps a slight ccw rotation, but that's being picky. Tfs!

Hi Suzy:
verry good capture
good POV.

Hi Suzy, A spectacularly high bounce of the smallish wave off the concrete wall. It would even be better if lightened a little more. Good work. TFS. Murray.

Bonjour Suzy

Excatly my mood today ... et encore cette vague est "gentille" comparée à mon humeur du jour.
Beautiful, and wonderful moment well captured.

Best regards
and surtout TFS

Bonjour Suzy
J'adore les "splashes" de la mer et celui-ci est fantastique.La mer ne semble pas énormément agitée pourtant.Mais sous l'apparence "zen" se cache parfois un tempérament explosif n'est-ce pas?
Beau point de vue et un parfait rendu de cette scène spectaculaire
A bientôt, j'espère
