Quoting ILLINILASS:
What is your "normal" tide?


A 'normal' high tide for this time of year is about 5 to 6 feet. This one, combined with high surf, created some interesting surges that deluged the beach in places, while other places were left high and dry.

A little over three years ago, I got a shot of 36 foot high waves that surged over the beach during a King Tide that was almost three feet above the high! I've never seen anything like it since.... not even close.

I was dwarfed, in this shot, below, from November 2, 2010: (I am 5'9" tall)

About Feather3

Feather3

Have lived on the Mendocino coast of California for almost 30 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 2013, the FujiFilm FinePix HS25EXR and later, the NIKON D3200 came into my life :) - they are amazing pieces of equipment, but on August 5, 2015, I received my much longed-for Canon EOS... it's the 5DS R! And, I now have a Tamron 150-600mm lens! WOOT WOOT! No more camera-envy! .......In early 2012, I was diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type III; a genetic anomaly that for some women, hits hard with the natural hormonal changes of life, affecting the joints, contributing to chronic pain and chronic tendonitis, as well as osteoarthritis.... so I get out less and less often, but am very thankful for the days I can get out. In May of 2014, my partner and I bought a house on an acre out in the redwood forest.... so a lot of my photos will and have been, of our little place.... in October of 2014, my partner and I got married! :) He is a literal answer to prayer.... 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! :)
