When Wayne Easton was walking along the edge of the Mahlongwa River in eastern South Africa, he noticed a small trickle of water cutting through the sandy river bank. That flow then traveled toward the Indian Ocean. And Easton may have recognized what was about to happen, as he began to film the scene – and the resulting footage ended up capturing something extraordinary.
Then Easton later uploaded his recordings onto YouTube as two separate video clips, allowing everyone to catch a remarkable glimpse of nature in action. And while the picture quality is at times a little raw, viewers are nonetheless able to tap into Easton’s own excitement – and share in it, too.
