Dynamic Photos of the Ocean During Powerful Storms

This collection of dramatic seascapes captures the striking power of nature as it collides with the fine art of photography. Created by Montauk, NY-based photographer Dalton Portella, the images are filled with a painterly quality that depicts the powerful force of the ocean during stormy weather. Dark, ominous clouds and streaks of lightning fill the sky while layers of texture blend sea and atmosphere together into one vibrantly colored palette.

As each storm rolls in, the ocean moves with violent force to create waves that curl up and crash down again in an instant. Portella captures those exciting moments with a single snap of his shutter, and viewers will almost feel the mist of the ocean water spraying up throughout the air. Portella explains, “With my art, I capture essence; the essence of places I’ve been, emotions I’ve felt, and the subjects I paint and photograph. I portray the broad range of the human experience.”
