Tide Is High

Photograph by Fran Virues Avila, National Geographic Your Shot

“Pay attention,” Your Shot member Fran Virues Avila was told by the diver seen here. “My jump will be worthy of observing.” Avila visits La Caleta Beach in Cádiz, Spain, every year to see people take the plunge when the tide is high. Perhaps this particular diver trains during the year or has natural athletic abilities, Avila ponders. In any case, he writes, the result did not disappoint, displaying “a mixture [of] freedom and courage.”
