The Mighty Storm Emma
The island has been battered by strong winds and raging seas for the last couple of days but thankfully we seem to have avoided the snow!
I had some time today so went out "storm chasing", something I love doing despite the cold. The light wasn't brilliant but it was just incredible to see the power of the sea in all its glory.
It was absolutely freezing and I started off at the Lifeboat Station in Ramsey as the slipway gave unobstructive views of the waves crashing. It was so cold even the lovely RNLI man offered me a hot drink, and his little dog thought I was mad as he didn't even want to be outside.
The roads were understandably closed as the sea was jumping the sea wall with ease so it was a bit of a faff moving from A to B, but after high tide I drove to Laxey to meet a friend. Even an hour after the high tide the waves were crashing over the lighthouse and I think I probably should have gone to Laxey in the first place.
I hope you enjoy looking at the images of the storm. Please like my page to be the first to see my work as it is published.
Thank you xx
