Interesting Photo of the Day: Man vs. Fish

Sometimes photographers just get lucky. They’re in the right place at the right time to capture a once-in-a-lifetime image. This is one of those moments. In this gravity-defying shot captured off the island of Maré in New Caledonia, an French territory and archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, we see a man engaged in traditional spearfishing, suspended parallel above clear aqua water, forever frozen in a key moment of his battle against a large fish. Did he get it?

Taken by photographer Stéphane Ducandas, the photo was originally submitted to the 2011 National Geographic Traveler photo contest under the category of “Spontaneous Moments” (Via Reddit) Capturing unexpected moments — ones that are surprising, or extraordinary, or stunningly beautiful — is one of the joys of photography, so always be on the lookout; you never know when you’ll encounter a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity.
