Dragonfly at the Shore Break

Waves on the west side of O'ahu during the late-fall to winter months tend to break right on the shore. This photograph is particularly unique because the two subjects are opposite in character. You can see how big and relentless the shore break is but then notice a delicate dragonfly fluttering above.
