18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Flying Boy, Wellington Harbor, New Zealand 2019

While exploring the harbor of Wellington, New Zealand, I happened to see this boy enjoying the thrill of jumping from a high tower into the water below. Using the rapid multi-exposure mode of my Nikon, I was able to capture several fleeting aspects of his jump. This image seemed to express his joy and freedom more than the others.
