UPY 2016 Wide Angle - Highly Commended
'Beach Guardians' - ALEJANDRO PRIETO

Playa del Carmen Quintana Roo Mexico. Returning from a dive with bull sharks I saw a beautiful flock of seagulls flying very low over a crowded beach. This white creatures are comfortable with human presence, they usually low and gentle fly over the people looking for food; this behavior allowed me to try to shot them from beneath the water. I took me many times visiting the area and thousands of photos before getting it. With this photograph I want to show that ordinary subjects can become extraordinary depending on the perspective you see them.
