Story behind the photograph
Rock fishing is a very popular form of fishing in Australia. However, as this photograph of a huge wave raising high above the fishermen demonstrates it can be a very dangerous activity. This photograph was taken soon after sunrise and the fishermen look straight in to the light of the morning sun may not even see a big wave like this coming his way. Luckily, this man was a very experienced fishermen and kept moving away from the edge of the rocks as each big wave set approached.
