    There were huge waves in Aberdeen today.
    I captured loads of pics of the harbour entrance beacon being lashed by them.
    It was a spectacular sight, really awesome so here's 10 pics.

    All with EM-5 and Lumix 35-100 lens.

    Thanks.

    The beacon is about 120ft (35 metres) high including the base.

    Someone should have been standing on the stairs, for a sense of scale.....
