Bow Wave on the Northumberland Strait Ferry

Water texture and pattern in the wake of a ferry crossing the still waters of the Northumberland Strait in Canada

As the ferry ploughed the still water of the Northumberland Strait, on the crossing from Wood Holes on Prince Edward Island to Pictou in Nova Scotia, it cast curtains of foam-flecked swell to port and starboard, and the vibrations from the engines sent millions of micro-ripples across the smooth surface into the distance.

Stormy seas at Burry Holms in June

Photographed today at Rhossili Beach on Gower Peninsula in South Wales, this video clip shows the beautiful weather we are having this June – and proves I am no ‘fair weather’ naturalist. The sea was a maelstrom which even the keenest of surfers did not enter. The waves were driven with such force against the rocks of Burry Holms that they seemed to explode into giant clouds. It was fantastic to be there.

[I could barely stand upright in the wind so there is some camera wobble. It was pouring as well so I had to keep wiping the lens; and you can hear the rain drops falling in the camera even with the thunderous roar of the waves.]
