Reader Photo: A cluster of surfers off Venice Beach

Jason Moskowitz photographed a cluster of surfers off Venice Beach from the Venice Fishing Pier. The morning light caught his attention, as well as the organism-like quality of the surfers.

“These individual surfers became this interlocking organism all bobbing there waiting for the same exact moment of the surge,” he said.

Moskowitz took this photo on April 17 with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II.
