This is an example why it's advisable why to protect a camera against the weather. #Storms and spray from the #ocean can do serious damage to your gear, I did actually 'drown' one of my cameras a while back, in similar conditions.
The light looked like a big whiteish smudge on the camera screen, but seeing the image on a real screen changed my mind!!! To me it looks like a firestorm on top of these waves and people to the right watching the scene. For them, with the sun at their backs, it will have looked far less spectacular though.
This image was something of an accident, the light effect caused by sea spray on the lens. My gear is weather proof, but I still put the camera and lens into a special rain coat. In this case, the water touched only the outer glass of the lens, which is no reason to worry.
