A surfer avoiding collision with another surfer in Tahiti.

This photo was taken on a recent trip I took to Tahiti. The water was so clear and vivid that I decided to shoot strictly under water this day. I noticed a surfer catching a wave and wanted to get a shot from behind the wave. Little did I know that another surfer was paddling for his life and needed to avoid a disaster! Believe it or not Hawaii does not have the clarity that Tahiti has. It took me 29 years to finally get here and now I decided to move to Tahiti in the near future. It comes to show how traveling can change your life!
