stormy weather photos

I guess autumn or winter has caught up with us because today was our coldest day yet this year. The forecast called for showers all around most of the country with the wind making some large waves. Since we couldn't be gardening, it was perfect timing for a trip around the mountain to see the water dance under the storm's influence.
We started out on the south part of Taranaki and made our way up the coast around the edge of the district. It seemed the farther we went, the bigger the waves were.

I could hear the surf.

It's fun to go to the beach on a stormy day and watch the huge waves crash on shore.

Oh, my word....your photos are awesome. What a beautiful place! Thank you so much for linking up with me....HOPE to see you again next week. I'm definitely just an amateur at taking photos and my phone camera isn't very good...I find myself taking pics at things I see when I'm out and about most of the time....but yours photography is professional. HOPE you have a great weekend.

Beautiful photos. I especially like the first one, showing the size of the waves in comparison to the surfer. Brrr. Looks cold.
My Saturday Snapshot post features a tiny library.
