WAVES! :: Laguna Beach Photographer

Apparently high winds in the South Pacific near Tahiti have caused the 8-12+ foot swells and wicked rip tide we've experienced here in SoCal the last few days.

Totally awesome, spectacular WAVES.

Here's Big Dude in all his 40yo awesomeness...

Middle Dude was impressed AND wanted to experience some of that for himself...

Big and Middle Dude emerge a little bit wetter, but none the worse for wear. :-)

I think I'd be with that lady in the photo - running away! Looks like fun!

Wow...I was down by Newport this past weekend, and heard there was something like 20 foot high--this was the evidence.

I laughed at these--how fun!

Wow. So magnificent. When I see things like that it makes me think of God's greatness!

My heart started racing with these..Yikes..I would have been freaking out that the waves would take my sweet's right off the rocks! but the photo does not tell all right..there was a little tiny running room..(smart girl)...well and then I see the wave that covered them...Brave souls...Seriously did it scare you even a little?

And yet our Awesome God holds back the water...Amazing :)

He looks like he was summoning the great waves. And then he looks like his command was granted. :-)
