Below is the photo I submitted for this contest. I submitted this same photo for a Canada photo contest for the Gazette newspaper here in Montreal, and I came VERY close to winning! SO please vote for me!! I'd love to have the grand prize!
To have a little background info on this picture, I took this at the beach near Tofino, British Columbia. It was April 2006 or 2007, really cold, and this guy fully dressed in his gear was running out to catch some waves. I thought he was crazy because it was really cold, but look at how awesome this shot is!?! I even used my little point-and-shoot Canon to grab this. Nifty!!
