The photo contest #Water2019 gathered more than 16.665 submissions of photographers from all corners of the planet in the AGORA images free-to-use app. Everyone submitted beautiful pieces, but one stood out from the crowd. 

AGORA user @Leemumford8 certainly made a splash in #Water2019, by becoming the latest AGORA Hero with his magnificent shot that was voted the Best of the World.

Originally from the UK, Lee Mumford has been living and working in Hong Kong for the past couple of years. His journey into photography started at a young age, where he learned how to develop his own rolls of film and print his own images in the darkroom. His passion grew after he fulfilled his dream to become an airline pilot, enabling him to travel the world with his camera.

His winning image 'Tides' was taken in Mona Vale, Sydney, one of the many rock pools on the eastern coast of Australia, with a Mavic Pro II Drone.

One of things that makes me realize how much more I'd prefer a natural shot than looking at things arranged for a shot..
