Storm Doris on the way to Ireland

Atlantic storm Doris is due to strike the northern half of Ireland during the early hours of February 23rd 2017 when winds of up to 120 km/h are predicted for parts of the country and a status yellow weather warning in effect for all of Ireland and a status orange warning in effect for many counties.

As I write this post it is still quite calm and it got me thinking about this image from a few years ago from Ireland's Atlantic coast, part of the famous Wild Atlantic Way.

It was a bright day with not a lot of wind and yet the energy of the ocean can be seen here with a powerful wave hitting the harbour wall and enveloping it in white water and seaweed.

I was about to head home because there wasn't much of interest happening at this location for my camera to capture and then all of a sudden a few large waves started breaking on the shore followed by this cracker.

So let's see what tomorrow brings. Lots of rain is forecast as well so it won't look as bright as in this image.

Join Panoramic Ireland, that's me, on a photography workshop on Ireland's wild Atlantic Coast or in its ancient east.
