21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Emerald splash

Took this wave photograph early in the morning after the sunrise. Storm was moving away and sun breaking through the clouds and illuminated waves from behind which offered this beautiful scene. I waited till the wave reached its peak to photograph that moment.
