Sydney Surfer

Photograph and caption by Ian Bird

"This photo was taken 300 feet directly above the wave from a helicopter, just as the surfer is pulling under the lip of the barrel," says photographer Ian Bird, who submitted this photo to the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest. "This wave is situated right near the CBD [Central Business District] of Sydney. Some describe it as the most dangerous wave in Australia."
