14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A paraglider soars over the Pacific.
I grew up in San Diego and the glider port was my favorite spot in the city to think and relax and have the most breathtaking views no matter what time or day it was. After moving away, I returned this summer and was reminded of the beauty of this place I miss so much. There is no view I would rather be able to have every day than this one. The sheer vastness of the ocean and the control the wind has of the paragliders is truly humbling.
