Fort Bragg, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: During our tsunami warning that had been downgraded to an advisory, this afternoon. It was getting closer to high tide, but it was strange, watching the surges: one minute, the beach was bare, and within minutes, a surge would build up as wave after wave, low, but surging, would inundate the beaches....more shots to come.

Incredible shot, awesome capture. Love your Glass beach photos. Met my girlfriend (SKERT)through some of your glass beach photos about 5 years ago. Darrell


This just thrills me no end, to think that some of my photos have brought people together. What a neat thing to share with the two of you :o)

i'm glad you were a safe distance. We were quite surprised that the surges lasted all day long. Wish I could have seen the initial ocean reaction here but it was 3:30 a.m.! What a long night! Great photo. Congratulations on another AC. I enjoy your work.

Storm Coming is from 2002 and is a rogue photo. There aren't two AC's in March 11th series; but from November's 2002 series, they were - they were the first photos I ever posted when I joined in December of 2003 and we immediately awarded AC for some strange reason (they're not that good). :)

Beautiful coloring of the waves. Tragic that such beauty came the way it did. Great shot. Feeling for Japan.

Take care.

Gorgeous movement in this shot Feather. Stay safe! Our prayers are with everyone that has been affected by this disaster.
Always celebrating life, Debra
PS funny how your old photo from 2002 of a different storm has attached to this series... Almost ironic, isn't it!


Yeah, the galleries get messed up from time to time. I guess I need to submit another ticket :)

VERY NICE!! Our waves this afternoon might have been generated by the higher-magnitude aftershocks. We had a series of waves hit 6 hours after the original tsunami was supposed to hit our area.

Thank you for paying attention Feather3!

I have seen small tsunamis in the past, they are just a bit different from regular wind-generated waves, aren't they. The beach does empty out and then fill right up...

Glad this was all you experienced. Stay safe!

About Feather3

Feather3

Have lived on the Mendocino coast of California for almost 29 years. I have sold some photos, so I guess that makes me a freelance professional? :)I hope you enjoy these! My passion in art is drawing in pen and ink: birds. I have severe carpal tunnel that, while it seems to be getting better, has made it difficult to draw the smaller, finer details I was used to doing before - so in 2006, I took up photography and in July of 2012, the FujiFilm FinePix HS25 XD came into my life :) - It is an amazing piece of equipment -- with many features including a 30X wide-angle capability that has simply astound me time after time........I have been drawing again, however, and am thankful! :) Exercises for the carpal tunnel nerve have helped *tremendously* thanks for a few folks here on WU! :) U NO HOOOO U R ....As a former wildlife rehabilitator (1986-2003), I frequently will receive calls to rescue wild birds - there are a few shots of these in my gallery, but I prefer to catch and turn in to a local vet or another rehabber, or catch and release, as the case may be, without a lot of stress to the critter by taking photos of an injured, scared animal.In my life I have also been a naturalist for a local nature center and have led nature hikes to identify area plant life as well as wildlife. It is from this perspective that I enjoy sharing my photos of the same, not having had the pleasure during my short stay at the nature center, but loving it all nonetheless. I think WunderGround is a lot of fun and have been enjoying this site tremendously - meeting other photog's from all over the world is one of the best - but seeing their photos! WOW! :)Be sure to visit my website - launched on 09/09/09, called Sunrise Sea Glass! Click on my website link to visit
