This is what the surf normally looks like on Tongetapu Island. So you can imagine that we were a little nervous hanging out here during the Tsunami warnings of October, 2009. Tonga will be one of the first nations to be seriously affected by global warming since most of the islands are flat and rise to only a few meters above sea level. I can't imagine having this on my doorstep with the seas rising and having nowhere to go...

Eccezionale per la drammaticitą del cielo, la maestositą dell'onda. Bellissima composizione con incantevoli luce e colori.

Nice usage of the ND filter. Vivid colour in the middle makes it even more impressive. Well done!
