    This is a wonderful photo, Ben. The (small) island, the surfer in the water between small breakers, and the bird overhead, all topped off by that towering cloud over the island. The cloud seems to emanate from the island like steam from a small volcano! Your title is a perfect counterpoint to this photo. (Lol, the surfer actually looks more like a large bird than a person!)

  • Thanks Jan. I think it was actually one of those knee boards with a paddle. The surfer is the father of the kids on the beach- the kids in “The Explorers”.
