A shark appears at a surf competition at Macauley’s Beach in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales captured by photographer Steph Bellamy yesterday.
“I took a shot, but as I stood up there was a splash and I thought, ‘what was that?’ and hit the button to take another photograph,” she said.
“Then I heard the judges say, ‘Wow, what was that?’ and I expanded the shot out so I could have a look and it was as plain as day there was a major photobomb from a beautiful creature of our planet. It was a shark, and quite a large one.”
She said the mums and kids were told to get out of the water, but 10 minutes later the competition resumed with the open men’s heat.
