Surfer and Seagulls, Malibu

Photograph by Neo Melanthiou, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Adventure and Exploration Photos

A picture that depicts Malibu's beauty from a different perspective. The exposure of the ocean's bottom due to the low tide, in combination with the surrounding gulls, make the surfer experience the ocean's powerful aura.

To all the Nat Geo Readers, 

My name is Neo Melanthiou and I happen to be both the surfer in the picture and the person who uploaded it here. Over the last year, I have been trying to contact Nat Geo in an effort to properly credit the actual photographer, which happens to be a good friend of mine but I did not have any luck.  

It is really important for me to credit this talented individual so please allow me to share his contact info. 

The photographer's name is Antreas Poupoutsis. You can further look him up at his personal website at:

Thanks everyone
