Nazaré Big Waves

JK_BIG_WAVES_4823

Portugal Atlantic coast in Nazaré, that’s as big as it get’s. Thank’s to a big underwater canyon finishing right in front of the Praia do Norte, the swell comes to the shore and the end of the canyon will be build up the wave to what we know the Nazaré wave.

This waves are from the crazy Wednesday in November 2018. Over night the waves were building up. Right before midnight I drove down to the faro the lighthouse from Nazaré, it was dark no light no stars and no moon. No horror movie will ever be as impressive as the noise of the waves crashing in the rocks below the lighthouse.
The next morning with the first light I finally could see with my eyes the Nazaré waves.
