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.

This creature was totally comfortable with my close positioning for the shot, but I felt the strobe may upset it at this close range, so switched it off before shooting. My buddy is in the background having just spotted a second turtle.

"Ray Under Rays"
Since the Ray's are so used to snorkelers and divers, they have enough trust to make overhead passes like these, making for interesting angles and of course sun rays.
