Great shot.
Does she understand the danger??
apparently not??

idleye: Hi Rob,
Understand is an interesting word - combine a handful of disregard with a pinch of curiosity and stir with the spoon of 'it's unlikely to happen today' and you get 2 people silly enough (I was one) to climb a lower section of what is known locally as "the reef" to see what the waves breaking on the other side looked like.
Oddly enough 'scary' is descriptive!
Add to that - the reef is made of lots of little shells in a natural conglomerate and faling / sliding down it would be a little like sliding down one of those super sharp tiny bladed graters I use on my parmasan cheese.
The local shop had on its wall an enlarged photo of a wave breaking over the same area of the reef - in the foreground of this scene (a sandy beach area) there are a couple of people standing and the wave is breaking at at least 10x their apparent height - terrific photo and great timing - the danger sign is there for a real reason.
