Not only that this is a good shot with superb exposure, it also wakes us all up and reminds us what we are diving and shooting for. A very clear message in your photo, Roland....and this makes it a well deserved winner-shot :-)

A shot that gives the "topside" category new value & meaning, Roland !
"SAD MOMENT"
Just in front where I live, this whale was driven ashore today. Pumped up by the gases in the body is now waiting for his last ride. Tomorrow morning they bring him to open water, and with a blasting he will end as fish food.
