The photo above showing a huge wave pounding a natural breakwater at Catania, Italy was taken during the afternoon of April 4, 2012. The weather was actually pretty tame this early spring day — this wave and other big ones that crashed ashore were generated from a distant storm. These waves, approximately 7 ft (2 m) in height, were splashing on rocks 30 ft (9 m) above the water line. The coastline here is composed of basaltic lava – carried to the sea from eruptions on Mount Etna.
