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!

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.

Strobes malfunctioned but the lighting still worked when this Great Hammerhead Shark glided over the sand at the right angle like a plane coming in for a landing. I like the stripes of sand contrasting the Hammerhead. Hope you do too.

"Shadow Chaser" - This Great Hammerhead was approaching me while diving with the reflection of the sand. My strobes actually malfunctioned so I had to use the natural light. This picture shows the Hammer chasing its shadow in a way.
