2 beautiful reef sharks happen to cross and block the sunball while clouds and a shadow of the boat is visible through the calm surface. Having so much natural light coming through the clear water, I turned off my strobes and captured this effect.

"Prairie Land"
Seagrass takes on the look of a prairie landscape in this slow shutter image. I utilized surge in the shallows, allowing it to push me through the seagrass while I framed rippling blue water as the landscape's sky and clouds.

There was a large shoal of small red fish evading a whale shark by hiding beneath our boat in Honda Bay, Palawan. Sometimes they gathered around us to seek protection. When they did break free from the boat they followed the whale shark.
