18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

"Paramount" was taken during the first Corona Virus lockdown in Hawaii. I was actually isolated at home for almost 6 weeks before I took this photo. During the lockdown, the government still allowed surfing and swimming as long as you were socially distanced. After going stir crazy, I decided to leave the house for an epic swell. It was a dream come true that I was actually able to socially distance with just the waves and I on this day. No crowd equals happy life for me.
