A Roiling Sea

Southern California is being pummeled this week with wind, huge waves, torrential rain... and snow in the mountains. As it starts to clear for the weekend I will of course hope to find some great photographic opportunities:) It's almost always interesting during that transitional, post-storm period and I've been wanting for some time to get at some fresh snow for a change of subject, so a trip up to the mountains is probably in order for the weekend (if I can get there). 15-20 ft. waves at the shore will be around for a few more days, too... can't go wrong with that. Some of the local piers are closed for safety because the waves are actually breaking over them.
Meantime, another in my recent glut of winter-season seascapes for today's SkyWatch. Check out other beautiful skies from around the world or post your own at the SkyWatch home page.

Gorgeous! Loved how the rocks are sullen and dark and the sunset (or sunrise?)is gloriously full of color!

I have been seeing so much damage and storms in your area. That is not the normal weather for your part of the country. Trust it all ends soon and you received no major damage.

Mark, I really like this perspective of the Big rocks and little yet dramatic sky. Good luck in the mountains. Hope you don't get stuck. Snowing here.
