In the post, you called it a "tidal wave", which might not be correct. Although the word means different things to different people, the normal use is "A gigantic wave caused by the tidal force of the moon and sun together."

Since the sun's location can be determined from the picture, this does not appear to be a tidal wave.

Doesn't matter, of course. Picture titles are mostly salesmanship. Clearly, this one worked.
