Lots of Waves

I like waves, and wind, they are both fun.  I will admit that I was nervous for the surfer.  I'm glad he created a great situation for me to photograph, but I was also glad when he decided to get out of the water after diving in twice, so he could wait for more surfers to show up.

To see the photographs on MLive, and photographs by other photographers of some of the damage the storm caused go to:
