Our friend Rich Hudnut was on the J-120 Twist during the 2010 Double Handed Farallones with
Timo Bruck. The sea conditions, swell wise were similar, but the breeze much lighter. Shooting
with a 500mm lens, Rich got an ample sample of what the SE Farallon looks like from the sea.
Terrifying and unforgiving are two adjectives that come to mind. Can't even imagine being forced
into Maintop Bay in conditions which existed Saturday. The whole weekend has been numbing,
from the 1st text from Nick Salvador to the calls on 16 and 22....It's a surreal feeling, and cannot
imaging the agony of the surviving crew members and families of those still missing...
