A snorkel at dawn gives you amazing light on this shallow snorkel. Stingrays will swim out on their way to the first tourists boats, but don't feed them. They keep coming back, swim between you and sometimes give you a massage with their wings. The place is magic!

The girl in the picture is my firstborn and she saw the light:-) more than 14 years ago under water...I guess this makes this image predestined! Shot with Olympus EPL-2, Panasonic 8mm, 1/320 f6.3 Iso 200, magic filter.

ZEN My favourite place at dawn. The famous Sandbar (close to Stingray City) in Grand Cayman. We don't feed the Stingrays (we go before the feedings starts). This makes them at ease, like it eases us. They choose to hang around, look, play, rest!
