This is one of the waves that hit Phuket, Thailand. One of the most beautiful Asian paradises in the world.

Picture was taken from an apartment on the 35th Floor just before the first wave hit.

The wave was apparently over 40 feet tall and at it's fastest point was moving at about 800 kms/hour.

The visual impact of this picture is too powerful not to share.

Did you take this picture? That's a really nasty wave that's for sure. I wonder what the hell 'god' was doing at this time?

I did not take the picture, I'm just sharing.
