Porthcawl storm

Early 2014 has seen a series of deep depressions track across the British Isles. The storm of 1st February coincided with spring tides so I travelled to Porthcawl seafront in south Wales for high tide, which coincided with sunrise. Facing directly towards the Atlantic, Porthcawl catches the full force of waves generated in the deep ocean, even before the storm reaches land. This one did not disappoint.
