While waves can mean many things — sound waves, hand waves, amber waves of grain — we are a beach community, so y’all delivered an inundation of ocean waves.
Our winner this week is from James Hammack of Mount Pleasant. The waves, made by a hurricane passing by Folly Beach pier years ago, dominate the surfer in his photo, and it captures all the drama and power contained in a wave.

From James Hammack of Mount Pleasant, “This photo was taken several years back when there was a hurricane passing about 300 miles offshore. This yielded a great long wave length surf. The picture was taken from Folly Beach pier, looking South. The wind was blowing offshore and blowing the crest of the waves back out to sea.”
From Charles Boyd of Hanahan, “Experimenting with using ND (Neutral Density) filters on a bright day at Folly Beach. Think of ‘sunglasses’ for your camera. Slowed the shutter down in bright sunshine to catch waves in motion.”
From Becky Brannon of Summerville, this photo was taken at Yachats, Oregon.
From Ronald Allan Charles of Goose Creek, “Where there’s a will, there’s a wave, and one found its way through the hole!” The photo was taken off the Atlantic coast of Costa Rica in Puerto Viejo.
From Debbie Goulding of Mount Pleasant, “Dolphin riding boat waves in the Cooper River near Drum Island.”
From Richard Hernandez of Goose Creek, “Nile riverboat captain waving at friends on shore. Egypt 2018. Our stateroom was close to the bridge, so when I heard him shouting, I leaned out and took this shot.”
From Kathy Nettles of Ruffin, “Photo taken in Broad River by the crab boat making waves.”
From Robert C. Peterson of Summerville, “Oceans have waves. Lakes have waves. Pools have waves too. Took this at our neighborhood pool here in Summerville.”
From Laura Schaible of Charleston, “Photo taken 9/14, on vacation in Mantoloking, NJ.”
From Ken Schaub of Daniel Island, “Street art shot taken in Aruba.”
From Jackie Sunday of Mount Pleasant, “Crashing through the waves at Isle of Palms.”
From Lara Wilson of Mount Pleasant, “Shipwreck beach, Kauai.”
