"Dream Of The Stingray"
I used a slow shutter speed while panning slightly fast to achieve an artistic blur on both the background and stingray. Photographed just under the surface with the camera pointing slightly up to capture the reflection.

A true gem of the ocean, The USS Kittiwake is a wonderful purpose sunk wreck enjoyed by divers and snorkelers alike. Sunk in 2011, she continues to serve the ocean as an artificial reef, tourist attraction and diver training facility.
