Photographer Clark Little is known for his jaw-dropping photos of giant waves crashing onto shore, a niche that’s known as shorebreak photography. Earlier this month, he captured the amazing shot above on a beach in Oahu, Hawaii.

Want to go up yet another level? Photographer Jacob VanderVelde managed to capture a photo of Rosa photographing Little photographing the wave (shortly after the shot above):
