Absolutely wonderful, Ian! Greets, Simona

Thanks Simona for your appreciation. It was thunderous surf that was crashing into the wall that day. The water would rise up about 10M everytime a wave hit the wall. It was far too dangerous to venture down any closer. But thrilling and awesome!

The colour of water is great!!!

A beautiful picture and nicely composed picture, Yan.

Greetings from Ukraine. Eva

As you said... really wet and wild! I enjoyed the rock garden as well!

Cheers, Andreas!

Especial perspective and gorgeous composition Ian ! My best regards, Tamás

Dear Tamás and Andreas,

I am so pleased that you have both visited this remote part of the planet with me.

Andreas has been here in person a couple of years ago, Tamás, so that's why he realises what it can be like. We both urge you to store this thought away in your mind that one day you might venture to this corner of our Lonely Planet.

Hey Ian. Great shot ! First i was thinking, an iceberg... But it is the see seeing from a cave.

Congratulations with your Tonga pictures. Thanks for sharing them.

Greetings, Jacques

Thank you for appreciating and enjoying Tonga through my pictures, Jacques. There will be many more to come in future uploads.

There certainly are no icebergs in Tonga, only the vastness of the broad tropical ocean, which sometimes crashes into the islands sculpting fantastic coasts...especially on coralline shores. This is an example.
