Wave of Sand

Your Shot photographer Danny Sepkowski admits that setting up his camera on a shore break is "not the safest thing to do." But he got this incredible shot of sand being sucked up into a wave by photographing with a 100mm lens. "Shooting with a macro lens has taught me patience and composition as well," he says. "The detail that this lens has is next level, and so are the beatings that I take with it!" This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
