Although it was my birthday yesterday, I could not resist to go out with my camera in that horrible weather… It was absolutely crazy, rain, coldness, wind was so strong that there was no way i could use my tripod. Constant splashing made me to wipe my lens every minute…. I was kind of scared that after the day my camera might refuse to work, I wasn’t even sure if I got any photos, as my lens was all the time wet…
Some people could think that it was a crazy think to do, instead of enjoying my birthday, but I had absolutely great time, and in the end it appeared that I got something…. LOVE Storms 🙂

What a day!!!!!!!! 🙂
Wow. Those are some pretty impressive waves. I’m glad you enjoyed your birthday doing what you love to do.
Great photos! How did they look with color?
hmmm… it was to dark and to leaden to get any colors, hence b&w. Personally think b&w enhance the drama… thanks for writing 😉
Wow – these are stunning in their drama!
Wow, awesome photos! Happy birthday! (Mine was Thursday and I didn’t take a single photo…sigh.)
Happy B-day to you too 🙂 Don’t worry about not taking photos, I was so very close to not go anywhere… but then I just could not resist 🙂
Excellent captures, great drama, Very nice job 🙂
wow, exotic photos
Great photos – worth getting wet for.

Who would not love storms when you get such great shots like these? Lovely.
Thank you everyone 🙂 I am glad you like my photos 🙂
Great series of shots.
#4 is terrible.
I am sorry you didn’t like it, I’ll try better next time
Sorry, I’ve used the wrong word. I mean it’s my favorite. They’re all incredible but #4 has a extraordinary shape.
Nice to be able to do what you want on your birthday – you’ve caught some great shots – I guess you didn’t remember to bring your camera’s “rain hat”!
I am afraid I don’t have it
the cheap-o version….clear….plastic…..bag….:-)
These are just A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! You are a really good storm hunter! 😉
Thank you 🙂
Like all of them!
¡Impresionante serie! me encanta, aunque el día no acompañó para pasear si para tomar estas imágenes, saludos
Awesome series! I love it, but did not follow the day to walk if to take these images, greetings
Thank you for your comments 🙂
Yep, crazy – but worth the effort. Superb shots. If there’s a bit of drizzle I run indoors with the camera!
Wow! These are amazing.
A belated Happy Birthday to you! I can well understand how that was a good way to spend a birthday. 🙂
You captured great power! amazing
no to, wszystkiego dobrego i wielu prześwietnych momentów i krajobrazów i portretów do uchwycenia!
This is my favorite set. This massive powerful nature is impressed me. Beautiful series of shoots you’ve done Pawel. Love this!
I live by the sea and I can relate. I also can’t think of a better way to spend my birthday (doing something I like). Great snapshots!
amazing photographs…hope you didn’t get too wet!
Love these powerful stormy shots! And many thanks too for stopping by my blog with a ‘Like’. 🙂
Fantastic work. I can hear the wave hit.
Wow … looks exhilarating! Happy Birthday, belatedly.
Beautiful shots with great tonal range!
Great series!!! Makes me go to our west coast in stormy weather and try myself 😉
– And thanks for stopping by my blog!
I’m a virgin where photography is concerned. I’m humbled by your stopping by my blog and “liking”. Very kind of you. Great tip about using black and white for shots on a gray day.
Amazing shots showing the sheer power of nature. In b&w they are only better! By the way I think you did enjoy your birthday by doing something you obviously love.
P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking one of my posts!
Urodzinowa wyprawa..sztorm na zamowienie 😉
