Everyone's going to cry photoshop on this one, but I saw this beach recently on You-Tube blowing people off the beach with the takeoff jet-blast. Very cool shot! :)

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2009 05:48:53 AM
I had already seen tons of pictures of St Marteen, but this one is far more spectacular, excellent technique, timing; the family in the foreground adds much to the usual spotter's shot.

Good grief! Somewhere to avoid by the looks of it. Amazing shot.
