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.
Stephen Grant, 60, who lives in Porthcawl, Wales, with his wife Kath, caught all the images on the same morning in the seaside town.
After taking the photos home they noticed the shapes of a sea horse, wolf and lion emerging from the crashing waves.
