16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Sea Elephant

The photo was taken at Hvitserkur, in a well-known location of the photographers for the richness of the object, it was a huge hike and somehow risky to go down to the beach, but it was worth it. I tried to make a different picture of the usual ones, using a wide angle, which allowed to include more elements, like the brook in which I stuck my feet, with the stones shaped by the water.
