Thanks, Credits and Linkage.

Greetings,

I hope eveyone is enjoying the tsunami photography I have been posting; I'm attempting to put up only pictures of the wave itself. There's enough media coverage of the aftermath of this horrible event, and being a bit of a science geek, I made it a point to only show the destructive power of nature itself. Dead bodies aren't really my thing. Check out Ogrish is you want those.

In the process of posting up the best pictures as soon as I ran across them, I neglected to credit a few folks. I would like to do that now. My apologies go out to anyone I may have forgotten.

CNN
BBC
Reuters
