Chevron

It is hard for me to contemplate the timing of this photograph, even after witnessing the scene firsthand. As an avid surfer, ocean photography is my passion, yet this image displays something I have only seen once, and will probably never see again. The flight of the birds, in chevron formation, lined up perfectly with a frothy, cresting wave, creating a surreal ocean scene of perfect symmetry.
