A couple of weeks ago, Hurricane Larry was way off the coast of Maine causing high surf advisories for us. I decided to head over to the Ocean Path along Thunder Hole and Otter Point to check out the seas. The bottom observation deck at Thunder Hole was closed but I made my way down to the next level above that to capture some shots of the incoming surf.
In the above photograph, you can see why the park closes the bottom section of the observation deck! 🙂
I was stationed on the next level up from there snapping pictures.
It was when I was snapping the next photograph that I realized I might get exceedingly wet! After getting the photo, I immediately turned my back to the spray and avoided getting my camera completely drenched with salt water.
After hanging out at Thunder Hole, I drove down past Otter Point and got some more great photos of the wave action.
I noticed this guy up on the rock and snapped a couple of pictures. This is what the park means when it issues warnings to tourists about getting too close to the edge of the rocks during high surf advisories!
No better time to get out and photograph the park than during inclement weather! Makes for some superb photographs!
