Before The Fall

Updated on February 13, 2013

Frozen moments in time

Catch the wave at its peak

And bottle its magic

Forever to keep


Emotions come crashing

If only we could

Just remember the highs

And everything good


It helps to step in

At the heart of it all

The wonder unfolds

Just before the fall.



It all began as a lark when his wife wanted something artistic to decorate their wall. So Clark Little went out into the wonderful Hawaiian sea and began clicking the huge waves as they rolled in. There was one difference though – he shot them from the inside. The result? Stunning pictures of the waves before they break.

That was two years ago. Today he’s following the beauty inside the wave full time. He’s been featured in magazines and on TV. And he continues clicking pictures that seem to be from another world!

Thank you Feline Prophet for the forward about Clark Little!

      Candie - vulnerable and fragile - makes you think of emotions, right? That's how I felt!

      Thanks Benji - to short perhaps? I didn't want it to over-explain the visuals though :)

      Wow, such beautiful pictures. And a short and sweet poem. "The wonder unfolds just before the fall."

      For me there is nothing that makes me feel vulnerable and fragile like nature at it's finest. We don't get these breakers inland where I am, but there is nothing like watching the water during a storm. The power is breathtaking. These are breathtaking!
