Storm Freya Lyme Regis Cobb Coastal Photography does not get any better than this. High tide in the afternoon. Storm Fraya arriving in the afternoon. On a Sunday. The forecast even put the worst of the rain before the event.
A group of photographers, myself included ventured out to meet storm Fraya at the Cob Quay in Lyme Regis.
Conditions were a little windy to say the least but that’s to be expected during a storm. This was one of those times I was pleased to have my sturdy Manfroto tripod with me.
There was no expectation to use filters or try and capture gentle colourful pictures with the force of storm Fraya driving the sea with such force.
The sea did not stop it’s onslaught with wave after wave smashing against the Cob Quay sending plumes of spray high into the air. As soon as the sea went upwards
With photographers littered down the beach the storm pictures started. One of the biggest problems with this type of photography is capturing an image without getting in the way of others or having others in the way.
After a spell on the beach, I moved about to see if there could be any better locations to shoot Cob Quay being battered by storm Freya.
We were lucky with the weather during the afternoon with the odd cloud break giving sunny moments. The other bonus was the rain held off as forecast. It was an excellent few hours. One can never get bored of watching the sea when it has been whipped into a state by a real storm.
