17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
An aerial shot of some long boarders off the coast of Southern California.

I took my drone down to the beach for some quick shots of surfers while on a business trip in Southern California. It was a gorgeous day with perfect temperatures and I found a nice private beach with some surfers riding the waves. The aerial view gave me a new perspective on all the currents, sand, and abstract turmoil that occurs beneath the surface.
