While this momma humpback and her calf while remained motionless at 60' deep, I freedove to 60' deep to photograph them. It was amazing they didn't care about me!. I use a Subal Housing with a Nikon D70, a Tokina 10-17 and a 1/125, f/5.6 ISO 200

Who is watching who ? I took place on the balcony on Roca Partida beside the sharks and made the shot, from the sharks perspective. Happy they were docile sharks.

Galapagos and silvertip sharks at Roca Partida.

I like the pattern of the shark skin. Must be seen in big format. Fortunately the shark was a kind shark :-)

by Christian Nielsen
Dolphins close at Roca Partida, wrong lens, should have used 8mm fisheye in stead of 14 mm. They got very close and are rather big :-)

by Christian Nielsen
Who is watching who ? Another great encounter with numerable whitetip reef sharks at Roca Partida.

by Christian Nielsen
Biggest whitetip shark in the universe ??? Or maybe a fisheye distortion, or maybe a very small diver ? Your choice :-)

We spent a lot of time with this whale shark....we watched as this Galapagos shark rubbed the underneath side of the whale shark. I've never seen anything like it...

by David Valencia
I've seen many silhouette shots with whale sharks, but I like this one because you can observe the snorkelers interacting. It seems every diver silhouette has its own story.

There's nothing more exciting than a baitball. Here's a look at the entire frenzy. A beautiful interaction of nature.

This divemaster frees a 35ft whale shark from a thick fishing line. He had to keep up in strong current at 100ft. and peel the line from the skin after cutting the line in half.

This momma and baby humpback whale allow a diver's close approach. What an amazing experience.

An escort male pursues a momma and calf humpback whale. It only took a day before momma decided he didn't fit the bill. We found the momma and calf the next morning without the boyfriend.

The Best Safety Stop ever! Momma and Baby humpback Whales rest motionless in front of divers.

by David Valencia
This Whale Shark circles as we observe its entangled in a thick fishing line. The line, wrapped around the midsection, was deeply embedded in the whale shark's skin and must have been there for some time. The shark was later cut free.

Silky sharks encounter at Roca Partida in Revillagigedos Archipelago México. We started the dive close to Roca Partida then we decided to drift out to the open ocean where we encountered over 100 silkys passing by.

Whilst diving in the Socorro islands we came across a family of majestic Humpbacks at Roca Partida in the Socorro islands. These gentle giants stole my heart!

A curious baby humpback swims by me on the way to get a breath. The escort male is just visible behind momma. Despite the protection of the adult whales, two orcas killed and ate the baby the day after this photo was taken.

by Lauren Berger
After spending several days with this mama and calf at Roca Partida, Socorro, we watched in horror as two Orcas killed the baby. This photo reminds me of the beautiful encounter I had. The circle of life is magnificent yet cruel.

Giant's gaze. Male escort humpback eyes the photographer but passes calmly by, raising his pectoral fin just over my head to avoid contact.

"The Last Breath". My last dive at Roca Partida in the Revillagigdeos with this curious two week old baby humpback whale before he was taken as prey by Orcas.
