The story behind the image
Yesterday I shared an image of Petra as she enters the massive waves at the Playa de la Arena. Here’s a wider shot of the location that I took just 8 minutes before Petra entered the water! It shows the black beach – which not just looks weird but can also get very, very hot. And it shows the massive waves as they crash on the beach. A sign warns of strong currents.
In the image, the tourists are lined up at the waterfront facing the water, probably wondering whether they should enter the water, and if so, how they might do it without damages. One guy in the middle apparently has emerged from the water and looks down at his body and all the gray/black sand attached to it.
