The Irish Sea’re exercising

2293

When the sea shows the muscles, then everything else are just backdrop
even colors are deflected by the powerful dominance from the sea
the only colors seen are those in the water whipped up in the air almost like dust.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going
( Knute Rokne – norwegian-born american football player and coach)

      Thanks a lot – the nature really showed muscle – fun as the colors disappear completely in a situation like this – things looks almost black’n white or grey… 🙂 🙂

  1. Gosh!! I hope you were on a boat, hehe. I love storm and bad weather, I’d give you three likes for this post, Drake. ***

    aah, here comes the fourth *

      It’s very very fascinating watching the nature “exercising” and show the muscles – it was a day and a situation where it wasn’t the moment acting like a smart ass… ‘hahaha” 🙂 🙂

        • “hahaha” – you know boys are boys, no matter their age – but actually I’m very calculated in terms of risk – that I need to be, my time long ago with the military, I used as rescue instructor – I learned coming firemen how to rescue cats from trees and much more… 🙂 🙂 😉

          • Yes, it’ s tricky about taking risks…have to keep priorities, things of importance and everything else in mind. And it’ s great there’ s “a backpack” of experience that becomes very handy in situations like that.
            Though – you couldn’ t stay too far away – the wish to take the photo was still stronger. 😀

            • You have a point (as usual) – but some intense training we never forget, and risk calculating is such a large part of rescure training that you do it “sleepwalking” in other words you do things because you have exercising and exercising in a way you don’t think about as a new situation – you protect youself automatically… 🙂

              But in few words, you are right – I couldn’t help Carpe Diem… 🙂

  2. Wicked gorgeous! My prairie legs buckle at the knees when I look at your amazing shot.
    Where the he%$ were you standing? On shore I hope. Were you wearing a life jacket?
    You weren’t on your bike, were you? “LOL” very cool 😎 😎

      Thanks a lot, so glad you like it – really appreciates – it is quite easy to photograph you only have to stand ashore on a slope about 5-6 feet above normal sea level and 12-15 meters from the shore and then clic the bottom on the camera… 🙂 😉

      Okay it was a very impressive and wonderful fascinating view… 🙂

      Standing there ashore on a slope about 5-6 feet above normal sea level and 12-15 meters from the shore – fascinating view and no one doubt about who’s in charge – the nature of course – thanks a lot really appreciate your words… 🙂

  3. Fantastic photo and great post! Standing ovation for you!! 🙂
    We have the same quote in italian, that is “Quando il gioco si fa duro, i duri cominciano a giocare”… 😉 maybe a translation from english, from your norwegian-american football player..

      Thanks a lot, so glad you like the view – really appreciates… 🙂

      I believe that quote is “around the world now” – and known almost all launages – as I remember it so the norwegian guy died as an old man about 1930s, so it’s more than a couple of years he said so… 🙂 🙂

        Du har prøvet så meget, har du nogensinde været ude på havet i den slags vejr.
        Jeg prøvede det engang, da jeg sejlede fra Tanger til Gibraltar. Det var frygtindgydende!

        • Jeg er jo oprindeligt født som ø’original på den lille ø Samsø og boede der de første 5 år (mine forældre flyttede tilbage til øen da jeg som 15-16 årig alligevel skulle flytte hjemmefra på grund af uddannelse – så jeg blev opflasket med vand hele vejen rundt uanset vejr… 🙂

          Det sjoveste jeg har oplevet var en forårsstorm der hvor Kattegat og Skagerrak mødes – sindsygt urolig punkt især i halve og hele pelikaner – skulle sejle fra Larvik til Frederikshavn og vind var der nok af – da vi sejlede ud af fjordgrenen til Oslo Fjord var der ro og alle ombord troede den hellige grav velforvaret – indtil vi kom ud af Oslo Fjord – sad i den kæmpemæssige restaurant med spøudsigt agter – der var stuvende fuldt af glade og sultne rejsende flere hundrede – så begyndte showet og 10 minutter efter var vi 7 !!!!!! der sat mutters alene i restauranten og spiste med velbehag – i Frederikshavn ved landgangen så det ud som om der kom et læs smølfer fra Norge… 🙂 🙂

          • Uha! Jeg tror dig gerne, det hav kan tilbyde mange store udfordringer.
            Det kan virke lidt surrealistisk, når det er en stor restaurant med mange glade mennesker, men fokus på horisontlinien gør en stor forskel.
            Det er seriøst slemt at blive smølf 😉 Det har jeg prøvet i Portugal på en fiskekutter 😯

            Dejlig historie, Drake – Tak 🙂

  4. WOW. This is just astonishing. The sea with ‘muscles’ indeed. This is just – well, frightening, really, but a great photo!
