1 hour video of big ocean waves crashing into sea cliffs - HD 1080P

366 ratings | 73480 views
Big ocean waves - some 20 to 30 feet (6 - 9 meters) high breaking and crashing into cliffs along South Africa's Western Cape coast (often referred to in history and on old seafarers charts as the Cape of Storms). The power of a rough and stormy sea is incredible to watch and listen to as massive waves crack like thunder, collapse and crash into the side of the mountains sending spray high above the cliff ridges. Further down the coast as well as behind where I was positioned, the mountainside was hammered as far as the eye could see, with white water exploding skywards and raining down over the vegetation. I had a bit of fun with the title in the video "Africa Under Siege" because at times it really seems like the sea is preparing to launch an invasion as it scales the fortress-like cliffs. :) Just a quick note on the color of the foam for those who are not familiar with different types of sea foam. This video was shot in a pristine marine nature reserve with excellent water quality. The type of foam produced by diatoms is usually cream to caramel in color and in this area is due to the up-welling of nutrients after prolonged windy conditions when their populations thrive. It's because of the up-welling of nutrients and resulting phytoplankton blooms that the sea is able to support so much life and is therefore a sign of a healthy and productive ocean. Foam is produced when the phytoplankton are torn apart by the crashing waves and their spilled cell contents acts like soap, trapping air as it's churned up in the surf.

I use sound methods to fall asleep and I love the ocean and the sound of waves crashing it's really nice. I use meditation music as well but rn I've been really interested in the sea and haven't felt the ocean since 2015 sadly

+Rebecca Chinnis thanks so much for your kind comment. It is a lovely place with the mountains dropping so steeply down to the sea... very dramatic landscape. Bit of a struggle getting down to this spot but well worth it on a day like that. Jon

Still cannot get it how so much water came on this globe...massive!
Peaceful Scenes (3 years ago)
+Samadhijunkie It's incredible I agree!  It's a mystery as water seems to be so scarce in our solar system. We are so blessed. This world has so much beauty and diversity. Just hope we find a way to conserve what we still have.

+8 Hours of Yes, I think I would enjoy the snow/wind storm sounds as well.  Cheers for now.
8 Hours of (3 years ago)
Thanks for the kind words! Yeah, unusual sounds can be soothing, it's quite interesting. My personal favorites are different fans, machines and snow/wind storms. Thanks for the sub! :)
Peaceful Scenes (3 years ago)
+8 Hours of Thanks!   You have some nice sound tracks on your channel.  It's really interesting to see what sounds some people find relaxing... I never thought about it before but something like the sound of a washing machine is actually quite soothing.  Maybe it takes people back to those lazy Saturday mornings from childhood perhaps with Mom going about her chores while they sleep late.  :)  Will look through your sound vids a bit more.  I personally like the rain and ocean sounds the most.   Thanks for subscribing.  Will do the same.

Thanks so much for sharing!  This is awesome!!!  Such drama, and so much going on.
Peaceful Scenes (3 years ago)
+Antoinette Lake Thanks, glad you like it!   Yes, there really is a lot to watch in this one.  One of the things that fascinates me is how the energy of some of the bigger waves return back out to see after crashing into the cliffs and forms a swell that ramps over the next incoming wave.  Some even cause huge plumes of spray to shoot up as the outgoing wave flips over.
