Furious Ocean

After reading a promising forecast, Your Shot photographer Plamen Petkov drove 3.5 hours to get this view in Bulgaria. "I just have no words to describe what I saw. The sea was drowning and boiling," he remembers. "The waves furiously crashed into the rocks and tried to break down the lighthouse. It was hard to hold the camera while the wind was trying to knock me off." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
