Here's a sample of what the conditions were like in the Channel Islands. While wanting to illustrate how moving the surge was, it dawned on me that my Lumix does video. So I shot a little one. It fails to illustrate what I really wanted to capture: the eel grass flowing over the bottom, extending a full 4-5 feet in one direction, then all the way back to 4-5 feet in the other direction. It was a beautiful, billowing vision, and moved you back and forth quite a bit. My apologies to Stephen for posting what one might think is just a long study of his behind. I swear, it's not. Not really. Not totally, anyway. I mean, no, not at all.
