Winner of People in Nature: Bodyboarder

(Lee Slabber)
"I captured this image of a bodyboarder performing an aerial maneuver at the Hoek beach near my home. Like anything you choose to photograph, knowing your subject helps create a great image—and I spent many years bodyboarding when I was younger. The power of the wave, the color and flow of the water, and the precise timing of the bodyboarder’s ‘inverted air’ made an image that clearly shows man’s interaction with nature." - Photographer Lee Slabber
