Kite Surfer, by Jay

Today, Jay, or jds9000, is our featured photographer on the DPNow Picture of the Day.
Jay comes from the Channel Islands, an area of the world rich in beaches and coves. I'm assuming this shot of a kite surfer was taken locally. Without the dramatic tilting of the horizon this picture would have been a little ordinary, but Jay's framing has added new drama to the shot.

Our ultimate accolade, the DPNow Golden Gallery, is reserved for what we feel are the very finest images. We invite anyone to submit their pictures for inclusion in the Golden Gallery.
