16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Brock Swell - San Diego, California (February 25th, 2016)

When it comes to surfing, San Diego is seldom in the spotlight. During "El Nino" I dedicated 4 months to tracking and photographing largest wave that made its way onto San Diego's coastline. I wanted to remind people that one of the most incredible beaches in the world is found right here.
