Thread: O'Neill Cold Water Classic - post your pics!

  1. #1

    Default O'Neill Cold Water Classic - post your pics!

    Thought I'd start a thread for the surfing competition, since it's going on until next Wednesday. Here's a couple of mine from this afternoon.

    Saturday is looking good with 14 to 15 ft surf predicted.Low tide at 9.40 a.m and high at 4.15 p.m.Mind you the surf forecast is sometimes as inaccurate as the Met Office so dont hold your breath....unless your under a big wave

    Good stuff CM. Did you get your BIG lens yet?

    Like MPH I'm holding out for Saturday as well. The surf forecasts all point to Saturday (and next Tuesday) as the one's to aim for.

    Now I just need to figure how to fit in a 9 year old's birthday bash at Bettyhill as well!!!!

    Put it this way - the only cropping done on those was to straighten the horizon

    Saturday is looking very, very good. Mick has put me onto the Met Office marine observations; if you look at locations K7 and K5 here:

    http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/.../observations/

    - you can see that they're currently reporting a swell of 2.4m, which will be hitting our coast pretty soon.

    Just a shame the met office is forecsting heavy showers and gusts up to gale force but fortunately they're frequently wrong,gave up using their forecasts for astronomy as they were so wrong so often.

    Cool shots. I never seem to have the lens to take them. I can never get close to them like that. I love the color of the water. The only one snag it is cold

    Yes,the daily grind of work does get in the way of things.

    Saturday Morning, on reception in the Hotel watching the webcast of the surfing, looks good, I am hoping to get out there this afternoon!

    I do have to say it's a trifle frustrating watching my fellow Caithness photographers on the webcast though!

    Looking forward to seeing the photographs.

    Great shots MPH - were you on the rocks up close to the action? I'm a big wimp when it comes to seaweed, so I was much further back today.

    mph,
    Some great action shots.

    cazmanian_minx,
    I know what you mean about seaweed, prefer to photograph from the verticle position rather than the horizontal!
    Excellent series of shots.

    Cheers NL,was quite a nice morning too,apart from the mini hail storm which i think Deemac bore the brunt of.
