40 Awesome Examples of Action Photography

Photography in motion is magical in that it takes something ordinary and allows it to come alive. Action photography draws the viewer in, as if they were right there in the moment. When looking at an action shot, you should be able to feel the movement, sense the anticipation, or realize what a rare sight you are witnessing.
