It was definately intense as we inspected the northern coastline. All of the usual spots that typically have hundreds of feet of beaches had none. The storm surge was pushing its way into the tree line at some spots. The shorepound was burly and thumping. The amount of water and the speed at which it was moving makes you realize, one mistake and you are easily sucked into the mouth of an angry sea.
The blurred effect around the edges is not post editing but fortunate placement of water on the lens.

With the second largest storm in recorded history on its way in full force, it was something to see in person. A travel up the coast and multiple stops to witness the 27' waves crashing onto the shore. The photos below are some of the calm spots that were sheltered completely from the full force of the storm. Even though the waves don't look that huge there was still a 15' bomb set that would roll in every now and then.
