I love those waves! If I was in the neighbourhood, I would be right there with you, watching and photographing! Considering how much water is in each of those waves, I am amazed the pier is still standing!

That top shot especially is super with the sun coming in from behind and the subtle colors of the water and the pilings. GREAT!
