    Hi dear friends, after two crazy months at work and also at my free time (well, not free at all these days) I've managed to get a short break to take two pics for this one... glad to see you liked them :-) many thanks for your comments as usual!!
Unfortunately I couldn't save time to make my own comments on your entries... my apologies for that :-( it's 23:20 PM here, I've just made my votes, and still need to keep on working at least for an extra hour, last minute Christmas hurries at job :-(
I hope to recover my usual free time in January and the pace here in the challenges... I've enjoyed a lot all your pics from the challenges I've missed, hope this is the light at the end of the tunnel :-)
And hope to get one or two pics for the next one too :-) in fact, my pics for this challenge are the first ones in two months! my Panny almost got spiderwebs!! meh!
Finally, but most important, it's also time to wish you a happy and joyful Christmas and a happy new year... cheers!!!! :-) :-)

    Where is it? Looks dangerous! I especially like the way you captured the boy. He seems to be fascinated by nature's power.

    No secret where this was taken. I wonder you have any camera left with all the salt water exposure it gets. I like the top half of this photo. The stairs detract form the power of the sea. Fantastic timing for sure.

    Definitely water in motion ! You have captured the tension of the moment.

    Nice picture. Maybe a tighter crop (the lower 5 steps) may have been even better. My five cents, of course :-)

Good luck!

    Incredible shot of the water, I'd have stepped back too if it had come at me like that! I find the steps a bit overpowering - I would have been tempted to cut off at least the bottom two, and cloned out the white splotches

    The framing is good and the human interest makes the shot.
