    Youthful Energy - Off the Beaten Path. The two young men in the air are literally and figuratively "off the beaten path". This image was recorded while on a late afternoon walk on the island of Saipan in the Marianas Islands. The ocean you see is the Philippine Sea.

    From Your Shot photographer Sukanya De: “This image evokes powerful imagination, touching some eternal dreams with incredible expressions, making them come alive with fantasy! Amazing perspective and impeccable timing to capture these two youths mid-air in their somersaults as they turn in opposite directions with precision!! I love the layered coexistence of the earth, water and sky in the background with the two boys silhouetted against the elements.”
