This photo is amazing.

An aerial shot from Pensacola Beach, Florida has gone viral after someone captured a photo of a large hammerhead shark swimming near a beach.

Yes, we know that sharks are in the water, but this beautiful shot is telling.

You can see the massive size of this shark and the water and sand add to this amazing photo.

In recent days we have reported alligators being spotted in the gulf, and while that is somewhat out of the norm, seeing this huge shark is not.

Again, we will take the time here to remind you of the potential dangers in the water. Many will soon resort to the beaches to cool off, and we remind you to always be aware of your surroundings.

Here's the shot from above that has many admiring this shark off the Florida coast.
