After a long day of chasing these Blacktip sharks around the Islands shallow reefs, I managed to catch them swimming amongst the Mullet near shore while the sun set.

Hi,my first underwater housing, so I am new to this style. There is a bridge near me that was built in 2005 that curves around and then goes over the ocean, replacing the road that hugged the cliffs but shut due to rock falls. My bridge portrait!
