I felt too tired for no reason and didn't want to go shooting sunrise. All the more so the forecast offered 97% cloud cover and average 1.7m waves. My wife insisted to set an alarm and have a look at the clouds in the morning. And so I did.
At 3.50 I still felt tired and had low energy, but rugged clouds seemed promising and after 10 minutes, during which all steps of acceptance passed (denial, anger, depression, bargaining, acceptance) I gave up and started gathering things.
...Fast forward to the beach...
This was one of the best and most diverse sunrises in the last few months! And the best thing are occasional huge waves, which I adore and always hunt.
Thanks to my wife.

Lighting
It was fairly dull and grey but I didn't let it fool me. It just meant I had a low contrast scene easy to fix in editing.
Equipment
Nikon D750, Nikon 50/1.8D
Inspiration
The power of the storm. There is nothing more fascinating than a storm and it's raw power.
Editing
mainly edited contrast and made sure the water looked like water, not like a total mess. I used Luminosity masks for editing.
In my camera bag
Nikon D750, Tamron 15-30, Nikon 50/1.8, Nikon 70-300/3.5-5.6
Feedback
Stay safe. A storm is beautiful but dangerous. I would never pick a position where the wave could wash me away. So make it your priority #1. It's ok to get wet, but it's not ok to be in real danger. Another advise is to use longer lenses if you want waves to look massive.
