Straight Shot

A beachgoer appears to fly as he dives into the Aegean Sea at Milopotamos Beach in Pelion, Greece. This popular seaside spot is notable, not only for its crystal blue waters, but also for the large rock formation that pushes into the sea, dividing the beach into two. An opening in the rock or a tree-lined path over it allows beachgoers to move from one side to the other. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
