This is such a sad picture when placed in context with the theme of the ocean's violence. This child is stranded, surrounded by crashing waves and a swift current. Notice the difference in color of the water from the foreground to the background. The darker colors in the foreground could be the waves reaching for shore and then pulling back all the mud into the ocean, like a real tsunami does. This child seems so isolated because there are no other children with him. Making the child very tiny and showing the ocean to be massive around him makes him very vulnerable. What started out as a calm ocean with people playing in it has now turned very violent, much like the day the tsunami hit Asia in 2004. The use of color is very foreboding, gives an ominous feel to it. The jagged rocks do not lend themselves to safety and security.
