I would be hit by the waves within a few seconds,what came to my mind was should I run or stay?

But the sun was at the strategic angle where the sun ray was so bright like a star. At the same time, the clouds were so well reflected on the foreground, how could I just leave and miss this?

I was glad I stayed and with my prayer answered, the wave was not that strong to knock me down.

Yes, I was lucky the waves became weak when it reaches me :)

Special thanks to Randi and Fadil!

Fadil, hope this shot wont disappoint you. I need to shoot more frequent at this kind of extreme location! :)

誓 死 不 走 ! I swear to stay ! Otherwise you will be sorry missing this awesome shot !
The starburst is execellent and the flare of either Nikon or Canon look like no doubt much better than Sigma. So what's the next shot, the waves would have come to your feet !

Awesome shot HH! You made the right decision to stay, or else you would have missed the precious timing to capture the sun with its ray at this angle!
