these photos are stunning. they were taken by a former surfer in hawaii who has spent years finding the perfect spot and technique for taking photos of cresting waves. a few of the pics in the gallery show the photographer in his element, which, frankly, looks like some freaky stuff!
a snippet from the guardian (UK), which had a piece on the photographer (a guy named clark little):
After Clark stepped away from the incredible thrill of going big at Waimea, he realized that he longed to be back in his element. Clark has returned ot various North Shore shorebreaks to capture the beauty and power of these monstrous waves from the inside out. What he has achieved through the lens of his camera are images never seen by those who reside on land.
my three favorites:
