Power Of The Storm by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery
Storm Epsilon of October churns hundreds of miles off the coast of Rhode Island. The storm also produces swells that bring surfers from miles around. It also produces an impressive display of power on the rocky shore of Narragansett.
I have a strange attraction to these storms. I am antsy in one sense and fascinated by another. I have been at sea on ships when the water churns. That's antsy. All skills come to bear when on a ship. Taking steps need extra skill, let alone taking a turn at the wheel.
Onshore, observation warrants extra skill too. These waves can kill observers (and do so on an annual basis). I use a great deal of care in doing this photography task. I take time plotting the wind and tide. I make an appropriate footwear selection. I plot the timing of the waves. I only place my feet on dry spots on solid rock (nothing that might roll under my feet). I use the lens. I have people observing me with cell phones ready.
But the display of power is amazing. There is a thunderous sound that is awesome in every sense of the word. One can feel both insignificant in some moments. In other moments, one feels as if bestowed with an honor seeing these scenes. This is the nature of the Ocean State.
StormEpsilon: TheCrashOnce the wave reaches the shore, the energy must go somewhere. It's merely Newtonian Physics. The matter, water, is along for the ride. These are the results of Storm Epsilon at Black Point, Narragansett, Rhode Island.
