    Great! Stormy seas are always good over there. A mate of mine one rode his mountain bike along a sea wall ledge further along when it was like that... how he didn't fall in I'll never know...

    Default Mersey storm pictures?

    I hope someone is able to take pictures, and post them on here, of the storm effect on the Mersey. Goes without saying but I will say it anyway, I also hope they don't endanger themselves in an effort to get the perfect picture.

    Wow, can anyone get a good shot of any wind?
    Some bendy trees or something.....

    I am scared of going out in the wind, always have been.... and when the wind howls up the toilet bowl (no puns please, it really does, you can see the water moving) - that freaks me out a little too.

    Great pictures, Dave.
    Would you give some tips on what exposures to use?
    Thanks.

    What camera have you got?
