Portreath during the storms

At the end of 2013 when Cornwall was struck by a giant storm I was really excited, seeing these monstrous waves crashing into the coast. Waves that towered over the rugged Cornish cliffs, waves bursting with energy left me bursting with excitement.

I did not expect 2014 to continue with massive storms and more giant waves. As we left January behind and moved in February there has been no let up in the weather and therefore no let up in the photographs of giant waves!

Here are my photos from Saturday at Portreath when swells carrying waves up to 30ft high came crashing into the coast.

With more storms forecast this weekend and more again into the following week theres plenty more photo opportunities around the Cornish coast, I just hope the Cornish coastline can handle the consistent battering that mother nature is throwing at her.
