Hugo Pinheiro: vertical reverse by Miguel Nunes

Photographer Miguel Nunes has taken one of the best shots of the year, according to the Red Bull Illume 2013.

The photo features Hugo Pinheiro, a Portuguese bodyboarder, flying over the lip of a powerful wave. Nunes captures the wave ride from a vertical angle.

In fact, Miguel Nunes has had the chance to click for glory from a helicopter perspective. He will be competing with impressive surfing photos taken by Thomas Frey, Brian Nevis, and more.

The incredible picture is one of the 50 finalists of the Red Bull Illume 2013, a photographic competition of the best action and adventure sports shots.

The Red Bull Illume 2013 winners will be announced in the end of August, in Hong Kong. There are 10 categories at stake - Close Up, Energy, Experimental, Illumination, Lifestyle, New Creativity, Playground, Sequence, Spirit and Wings - and the overall title.
