½ a second before Tsunami

This picture was taken on the banks of Sumatra Island (the height of waves was of approx. 32 m = 105 ft).

It was found saved in a digital camera, 1 ½ years after the disaster.

We cannot know for sure, but very likely the one who took the picture is not alive any more (it was just a matter of seconds).

Today we can see the last image he/ she saw before ending life on this part of planet Earth!

It makes us understand that we are small when nature strikes!

I'm sorry to say, but that picture is not banks of Sumatra Island. The houses seems like typical houses in USA. Houses in Sumatra does not look like that at all. And it look more like sand storm rather than tsunami.
