At first glance I thought that these were giant mountains, but then I realized that these were actually waves. Photographer Ray Collins has a unique point of view of waves. And it is not a surprise, he spends so much time in water that he is quite intimate with those watery creatures. We asked Ray about the photos and they are not taken from the shore, they are taken from inside the water, very close to the waves, wearing a wetsuit and a pair of fins.

There is huge amount of power in Ray’s photos as most of the waves are caught just at their peaks with the huge mass of water a fraction of a second before the imminent crash.

A word of advice from Ray, carrying an underwater housing into the ocean is like holding a block of cement. You would have a much better chance of capturing water if you feel comfortable in water, and know how the sea works.

    Love the images, but the title is misleading clickbait — these shots really don’t at first seem like mountains…

    Whenever I realize a title is misleading clickbait I skip the rest of the article and judge it solely on that.

    Your eyes are stupid. You have stupid eyes. I hope they fall out because no eyes would be better than your stupid eyes.

    Da! By definition ALL titles are ‘clickbait’ and for all intents and purpose a ‘title’ is to elicit interest in the body of work! Sure some are designed well while others not so much nevertheless it’s pretty silly to judge or dismiss a work based solely on it’s title. There is an expression “NEVER Judge a BOOK by it’s Cover!” that, with a little rewording would also work for titles “NEVER Judge the Content by it’s Title.” The time to judge is when you read the last period or when it reads “The END!”
