"Illumination" - There are lots of beautiful swim throughs in Cayman, but I wanted to photograph more than just blue light coming through the back. When I came upon this conch shell in one of the swim throughs, I saw the photo I'd been waiting for.

With visibility less than ideal for the wreck dive, I decided to use my 100mm macro rather than a wide angle lens. It paid off when I spotted this Bearded Fireworm on a sea fan.
