Severn Bore - markhumpage
One of the advantages of witnessing the bore on a boat is the ability to get very close to the wave and capture unique angles. There was a price to pay mind. In order to get behind and ahead of the bore requires some pretty risky boat handling in order to ride over, and in some cases under the wave. Needless to say my camera gear and I got drenched on many occasions. This shot is ahead of the wave and is the tallest breaker I have ever seen the bore produce. I only wished there was surfer riding here in order to give scale. It must have been 7ft tall at this point, on a 4* intensity.
