Indeed, they must be mad! The powerful sense of movement in that colossal amount of water is well captured and emphasized by the seemingly inert figure of the madman. Brilliant!

Great shot Viv....very low light, but you still captured lots of detail and the power of the waves........I especially like that you captured the surfer silhouetted against the only white water in the picture....and the surfer gives it all scale....top shot...SmileAlan

Fabulous image...I agree with what Alan says about the white water...it acts as the perfect background.

Amazing capture, Viv. I, also, agree with Alan about the white surf. I love the lighting on the swell of the wave to the side of the kite surfer and the hues of the background are beautiful. You have captured the power of nature. Lovely. Cat
