UK storms ! Rough seas and ferocious waves ……………….

We took these photos over Christmas during our holidays in Wales.  The ferocity of the waves as they broke over the lighthouse and breakwater was quite something to see !  It was hard to stand up as the freezing winds were literally blowing us off our feet.  Foam was flying from the sea so much it looked like snow and peoples faces were bright red with the cold even though we were all wrapped up with hats, scarves and gloves.

It was definitely worth being at the seafront to witness some of these really spectacular waves!

The lighthouse in these photographs was the last in the UK to be powered by coal and gas and is over 150 years old.  Even though it stands several metres tall, it’s completely dwarfed by some of these waves.
