Storm waves hitting a stone jetty. Enormous waves like these are immensely powerful, and are capable of carrying away cars and people. The waves are part of a storm surge in which high winds have combined with high tides to produce extreme conditions. This storm, rated Force 11, took place in October 2004. Photographed in Newlyn, Cornwall, UK.
