'Sunning Sea Lions' - These Steller sea lions near Vancouver Island were so content with staying in the warm sunshine that not many wanted to get into the cold water with us. Can't say that I blame them!

"Mesmerizing"
Not a photo in the water, but rather, of the water. The crystal clear Cayman water I call home. Where I dive and explore and photograph magical things. It laps at the shore, calling me in. The water here is mesmerizing.
