Incredible Images Capture The Raw Beauty Of Waves Breaking Off The Coast Of South Africa

Beautiful seascapes capture the “raw power” of waves rising and crashing in the Indian Ocean. The stunning photos were taken off the coast of Durban in South Africa, and show formations from above and below the surface. Surfer and photographer Marck Botha took the images between April and July, and has always had a passion for the ocean.

Surfer and photographer Marck Botha took the following series of breathtaking seascapes of waves rising and crashing in South Africa to show the formations from above and below the surface. The self-employed South African has been surfing and traveling up and down the coast for over 20 years, and has a vast knowledge of the country’s coastline and which spots are most favorable under certain conditions. Some of the stills seem to capture the waves as if they were sculpted glass such is the precision of the photography. (Photo by Marck Botha/Barcroft Media)
