First, this is at the "Playa Organo" in Huatulco, you have to walk about 15 minutes in the forest from the road to get there, or to rent a small boat at Bahia Santa Cruz who's going to bring you there.. walking is cheaper! So, 90% of the time, it's a desert beach!
I was waiting on the side of the rocks for a "big" wave to crash into the rocks.. but I didn't expect a HUGE wave like that!! Hopefully I was on the Continuous • 5 fps mode .. so I took every details of that wave, the last one (this one) was the most beautiful one! Yes, it's true, I was very wet after the photo, same thing for the camera!! I used Iso 800 & f/4, to reach 1/8000 shutter speed.
So, it's not snow at all, but at the first look it could be..!!

Hi Michael, the result of sacrifice :-)) but at least good result... Really nice natural colours, the point of view is good, and with that speed the water really looks as snow, well done! I`ve been there, but in the lazy way... by boat. Chau chau!
