Sky Dive

A member of the University of Miami diving team is captured mid-arc against a partly cloudy South Florida sky. Your Shot member Matthew Trabold, a student photographer at the university’s newspaper, chose the event for his first assignment. “One of the great things about shooting in Miami is that you can almost always count on incredible clouds rolling in at some time during the day,” he writes. “I wanted to capture the contrast between the diver and the clouds, as well as emphasize the incredible height of the diving platform.” Trabold’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen. This photo was submitted to Your Shot.
