Photos Inside The Waves

The Waves 


Waimea Bay shore-break surfing pioneer, husband, and father of two, Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition for his photography with appearances  on Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and many local news  stations across the U.S.

Clark  Little on Good Morning America (2009): 

It all  started in 2007 when Clark's wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate  a wall. 

Voluntarily, Clark  grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and starting snapping away  capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the  inside out.

"Clark's  view" is a unique view of the ocean that most will only be able  to experience safely on land while studying one of Clark's  photos. 

Now with a camera upgrade and an itch to get  that better shot, Clark has taken this on full time and has moved his  office from land, to the inside of a barrel.  Since  the recent stir of Clark's work, his images have been run  on the Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature's Best  Photography, Paris Match (France), La  Vie (France), Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines)  magazine, Surfer magazine, Surfer's Journal as well as  multiple publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and  overseas.

These incredible  images of waves in the Hawaiian Islands were taken  by ClarkLittle, the number one photographer of surf. 

He is  dedicated to photographing the waves and has published a selection of  his best images. 

He  captures magical moments inside the tube as surfers say.

This  shot captures sand from the ocean's floor being swept up by a monstrous  wave and resembles a sandstorm.  
Little calls it the Sandmonster.  
There  were clouds of sand ten feet high and I'm standing there.  I'm  holding on to my camera and my trigger as long as I can.  Then I  have to jump into the cloud of sand to try to get out of danger's  way. 

His  fans pay as much as $4,000 for his gorgeous photos.

U-2 footage - TAKE A FLT. ON A U-2 TO 70,000 FEET

http://www.wimp.com/breathtakingfootage/    

 
Fasten your seat belt for a fantastic ride.

This video is a once in a lifetime experience of a British civilian getting a flight at over 70,000 ft. in a U-2 spy plane.  Please note at the take-off the assist wheels on the outer edges of the wings which drop off upon take-off.   The wings are so long that they need temporary support until lift-off.  What is not shown is at the landing the plane actually slows to a small enough speed that two guys are actually able to grab the wing tips and put those assist wheels back on.

The civilian getting the ride is the host of the car show Top Gear on BBC shown through Europe at 9:00 pm Sunday night in Belgium.  The views are spectacular as the U-2 flies at altitudes which constitute "SPACE."

Front Page News

This is pretty ingenious… http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/flash/ 

Just put your mouse on a city anywhere in the world and the newspaper headlines pop up...double click and the page gets larger....you can read the entire paper on some if you click on the right place. You can spend forever here.  Also, if you look at the European papers, the far left side of Germany will pop up as The Stars & Stripes (European edition, of course).

This site changes every day with the publication of new editions of the paper.
