    Stormy weather

    Dark clouds and crashing waves, not a particularly usual sight in Istanbul; and me on a rocking boat with M8 and 28 'cron, a frequently observed phenomenon after my purchase of M8
    Hope these shots convey the exhilarating joy of cruising in stormy weather.
    All criticisms most welcome.
    Best regards,
    Osman

    #1 is great,although I would crop it a bit to get the horizon out of the middle, the last one is awesome!

    Thanks Mike, Jaap, t_streng and dannh. Jaap, you're right, I must have been attracted by the clouds and the waves and couldn't forgo any of them.

    Excellent work ! I share you joy for stormy weather. I can see the sky over the ocean from my house and I often race down to the pier to catch the sky over the water.

    Getting out into on a boat really brings it home.

    Re: Stormy weather

    Great shots... #1, #3 & #4 are WOW!

    Looks like the M8 held up in your stormy weather test. Hope the weather gets better. We, in the U.S of A are brazing ourselves for the winter storm.
