Perfect Ride

Photograph by Massimo Rumi, National Geographic Your Shot

Your Shot member Massimo Rumi spent a month photographing on Sydney, Australias Bondi, Tamarama, and Bronte beaches, where some of the best surfers can be seen when the conditions are right, he says. He captured this perfect ride on the beach at Tamarama. My goal was to freeze the subject [while] capturing the essence of motion.
