Tsunami As Harvester of Souls

While surfing the web recently I came across this image for the first time. I do not know who took this tragic image nor do I know the precise date or location. What I do know is that it is a scene of devastation and carnage in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Given the architecture of the structures and and the number of bodies in this image and how it looks compared to all the other images I have seen of this disaster from the perspective of Thailand and Indonesia I believe this image shows a scene in Indonesia. I have looked at this image magnified and I believe there are well over 100 bloated, leaking corpses tangled in this jetsam and flotsam.
