Thank you Barbara.
I, like you, enjoy photographing the moods and drama displayed by nature. Warm regards,
Dramatic indeed Ian! Are the waves always like this on this spot? How many yeares will they take to eat up the cliff??? Beautiful capture, thank you dear friend!
Love, Maja ~~~
Thanks for appreciating the drama here, Maja. The waves while having destructive force, are actually contributing to the building of this reef platform! The surging surf is oxygenated in all this turmoil, and that is what the coral polyps and algae thrive on. Thus the rims and faces that you see here are actually growing in these conditions! Interesting, isn't it?
When I visit this area, I both watch particular sites for long periods, or go exploring for new spots that give me another impression of this fascinating coast.
Big waves, bold reef, wonderful coast. Great to share it with you, Margaritha. Ian
Thanks dywin. I appreciate you letting me know too.
Dear Ian, I love to see, hear and feel the dramatic roaring sea, trying to eat up the coast, eventually bringing the rocks and sand to some other places in the eternal game of nature!
Sorry to have neglected you and my other friends so badly, I will come back to enjoy your pages as thea deserve it! All my best wishes to you and your family for the coming days and the future! Warmest wishes, May
Amazing shot. L
Greetings from Denmark, Finn
Thanks Finn. It has been a while, But forgive me for I spend quite a piece of each year serving in other places, including Tonga. Glad you like this.
All the best for 2011.
Your interaction is special from my perspective and it is always appreciated. The many demands on your time in maintaining your photographic hobby in the midst of travel and home responsibilities is fully respected too.
Thank you for your continuous display of artistry, photography, and love of that wonderful homeland and for your sensitivity to both people and nature.
The desire to keep in touch is mutual. Thank you for your faithfulness. May you have a wonderful, fruitful and fulfilling 2011.
An increadible capture of the wave! Bravo! Olga
a powerful moment Ian
kind regards, Hubs
Greetings Olga. When you are impressed than I am very pleased, for you are a most adventurous woman, and you have had the privilege of seeing the remarkable images from your son in his sea-kayak in Kamchatka. So when you say this is incredible I am happy. Thanks indeed.
I appreciate your appreciation, Hubs. It is a dramatic coast.
Warm regards from Brisbane.
Thanks for the explanations to this fascinating natural wonder, Ian. Amazing photo!
Hello Klaus. The coasts of Tonga are fascinating - so much unexpected and so much that is unique. Glad that my explanations help one to understand.
