Clark Little has what some might consider a dream career -- capturing images of some of the most beautiful waves in the world as they crash off the coast of Hawaii.

The surfer-turned-photographer has become famous for his incredible pictures that take the viewer inside the waves as they break on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. It's a different view of waves that can be seen on a drive down the coastline of the island that produces perfect conditions for these magnificent crests.

"The shorebreak is my comfort zone," Little said on his website. "I absolutely love it. It's always different. The light, the colors, the water, the sand and what happens to it. And to be there to capture it and share it with the world ... what a dream."

What originally started as a request from his wife to capture a beautiful image of the sea, using his waterproof camera, for their bedroom, Little has turned his talent into an award-winning, worldwide phenomenon. Above are a collection of his images -- they're an absolute can't-miss.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz
September 27, 2013

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
