Jogging to Windward

Here I tried to convey the power of waves on the open sea in rough conditions. During my fishing days in my twenties, I often marveled how large steel-hulled trawlers with powerful diesel engines, were at times tossed about like a kid’s bathtub toys. The work of catching fish would stop and all one could manage was to steam into the oncoming weather and hope to maintain your position over the seafloor below until it passed. Hang the power of the seas in your home or office in a giclee print of Jogging to Windward that’s available to purchase on this site.
