Sven Zacek - Ocean storm

Sven Zacek - Ocean storm

I set out to photograph a nice sunset in Eastern Madeira. Working my way up the mountain tops I noticed a dark cloud approaching fast over the ocean. Soon all around me went dark and when the cloud arrived the winds hit very hard. With the wind came horizontal rain. It was quite an experience. As there was still some light from the setting sun on my right, I quickly started taking pictures. Needless to say most of them were blurry from the intense wind. My backside was completely wet, yet my front was completely dry. Of course on my way back I had to turn around...
