I wanted to capture the power and beauty of this grey reef shark. I think this comes best across when they are doing an abrupt turn away from a head on encounter.

Closeup and personal - This image was taken at Tiger Beach - Bahamas. Tiger Beach offers the best and easiest way to get close to these beautiful creatures.

Very candid photo shot at the moment the diver was reacting to a tap on the shoulder to warn them of the encounter. Notice the direction of the bubbles, truly a horrific surprise at 50 feet safety check!
