High tide and high seas at Langosta Beach

High tide and high seas combine for the fury of this wave on Langosta Beach. This is a contrast to the peaceful scene of the photos posted during the last two days.

During high tide, there are one or two points where walking along Langosta Beach makes it wise to time the walk around some of trees to coincide with the time when waves have receded into the ocean, or to walk on the inland rather than the ocean side of the bushes and trees on the beach.

We are featuring photos of India this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

i love the waves when they are crashing on the beach during high tide. great action shot. i think it is fun when the beach is disappearing below my feet when I try to walk home to the condo in high tide

Like Julie, I love to see crashing waves, however one must always be wary of the power of the sea. This is quite a contrast from yesterday's photo.

A strong and beautiful photo, reminds me of the waves on Lake Michigan or Lake Superior during a storm. As a small child we lived on a hill above Lake Michigan on Door County and the music of the waves and the plaintive tones of the lighthouse were my bedtime lullabies. Great memories!

Wow, there is some power there. I wouldn't want that wave to sneak up on me.

Great capture, David! I believe the tide is higher than normal, right?
