18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Eagle Eye

Flying high above sea level, with my drone, camera pointed 90 degrees down. I search for the most pleasing composition. The shallow waters of the coast of Koh Samui island is stunning. A medium sized yacht appeared into my scene, I waited a few minutes, it slowed down and I took a new shot. The contrast with the white boat against the striking emerald green natural sea I think made the image allot more telling and impactful.
