Here is a collection of photos taken from the boats in Tonga and Samoa. We were in Vava 'u for the Tsunami (still here) and I have been putting together a collection of the best photos since the day.

The full collection can be seen at-

You know a good thread might be how to keep your head and take photos when a natural disaster is taking place.

Just thinking about that.

Very dramatic... Were you out in or near the harbor when it arrived, then? As I recall, that quake gave very little warning time.

Quite a shocking reality.
Another contentious issue among western societies when it's becoming clearer and clearer that climate change is happening, and slowly causing the submersion of the low-lying Pacific islands.

Hope you came out alright.
