Mountainous waves during storm at sea


Here's a picture I copied from the NOAAPhotolib, entitled "Mountainous waves during storm at sea", which is an art work with these details:

Since this is an art work, it is not a photo, but it looks very real, a big thumb-up for the artist. I would put it in the same category as Hokusai!

Now compare this:

which I posted on Saturday, October 26, 2013, it is clearly that the real thing is indeed for real. I am not certain where this was taken or from where. A true mountainous wave which may or may not appeared out of nowhere. Just wish mariners may never encounter something like this!






























real!

Even though it is only an art work. it does capture the scene well.
Here is a link to a freak wave incident which happened about thirty miles from me yesterday.

Thank you very much Tony Lawlor for the comment and the new incident news near you. The BreakingNews video is for real and frightening. No one should let their guard down on the beach area even for a fraction of a second!
