Amazing Winner and Finalists of Nikons Surf Photo of the Year 2020
Nikon and Surfing Australia celebrate the artistry of surfing once again with the 2020 Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year contest. Twenty-three finalists were selected from among Australias most talented videographers and photographers. In the end, it was Ren McGann who won for his dramatic image, The Right. Capturing the beauty and intensity of surfing, McGanns photograph stood out against a strong roster of finalists. Snapped just as a wave is about to barrel around a surfer, the photograph has the perfect balance of light and shadow, with the deep blue color of the water set against a dark sky only enhancing the mood. It also has the right combination of the creativity, uniqueness, composition, and drama that the judges were after.

''I've always loved being out and about in Scotland and having spent a lot of time in Aviemore and the Cairngorms as I've grown up have being able to keep an eye on how the Osprey numbers have grown as the National Park and other bodies such as the RSPB have increased awareness and protection for them,'' says Stevens.
