13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A wave decides to break on top of me while I do what it takes to get the shot.

As a wave breaks under water, the impact creates a vortex. You do not want to see this vortex in person because you will get erased. I decided to capture these moments because this is Nature in a pure raw form. I am sacrificing my life but I believe that people should see this side of a wave. The under water world is versatile and powerful.
