Inspired by nearby competition, this male humpback put some serious power into this series of forward lunges. In 7 years of whale watching, I had never seen a lunge like this from this angle. Taken with a canon 350d and 70-300 lens.

Brilliant shark shot with superb light and the "splash in effect" gives the little extra. Very well done, Christian. Save the sharks !

The cenote (sinkhole/collapsed water cave) in this picture is an hour's drive from Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico. In the back recesses behind the Maya shaman blessing our swim is a stalactite cluster (not visible) formed over the last 300,000 years.

I've seen many silhouette shots with whale sharks, but I like this one because you can observe the snorkelers interacting. It seems every diver silhouette has its own story.
