  1. I see the fury, but from a different viewpoint. It reminds me of blowing snow drifts in a gale wind here in the northeast. Putting my vision aside, this is a very cool interpretation of waves and the black and white works very well.

  2. Seeing a small version of this picture first, I thought I was looking at wispy clouds. The larger version precluded clouds and left no doubt the picture shows the sea. The roughly evenly strung out areas of brightness are a nice touch.

    • Thank you. My middle name is Ambiguity. The roughly evenly strung out areas of brightness are courtesy of Ma Nature. She is sometimes a muse and sometimes an opponent, but she is always feisty.


  3. Amazing depiction of the forces of nature.
    You can also let your imagination run free and see the mouth of a sea monster or something like that.


      • World famous. I don’t think RT pictured herself in her position a few years back.
        Simply stunning work, Michael.

      • Thank you very very much. I hope to rise to that. RT, Bruce Percy, Oliver Klink, and others have thrown the gauntlet down. I have no choice but to pick it up. And as inspired as I am by them, I follow my own path.
