A sea horse, wolf and lion appeared in blasts of spray as huge waves crash against a pier.  As the storm raged, giant walls of water battered the coastline and erupted in clouds above the pier, forming shapes of animals in the mist.<br />

Stephen Grant, 60, who lives in Porthcawl, Wales, with his wife Kath, caught all the images on the same morning in the seaside town.  He said: "Storms occur throughout the year especially when the winds are blowing south-south westerly with gusts reaching up to 30mph to 40mph that cause big swells, throwing the waves over the pier, peaking at times to 20ft to 30ft high.
