13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Surfer Silhouettes in Byron Bay Australia

I was sitting on the beach while studying abroad in Australia. I was soaking in the sun and enjoying the beautiful thick clouds when I noticed I could see the outline of Brisbane in the distance. I knew I couldn't ask all of the people to move, so I decided to shoot the scene anyway. There were so many surfers on the beach that I ended up (somewhat accidentally) getting a really neat shot with their silhouettes in the foreground.
