    Edit Photo Details In Your Face   #cuba #reef #underwater #shark
    Caribbean reef sharks are usually shy so I placed my camera on a rock where I know they frequent and used a remote trigger to click away as they came in and bumped my camera around. The image was made in Cuba's gardens of the queen marine protected area. its nice to know there are still places where wildlife thrives. I think if we want to continue have a chance at a healthy life on earth we need more places like this....many more.

    I feel like this shark is brushing right up against me as I view this image from my office desk. Great work composing this image as I sure it was not easy at all. You were at 10mm with your lens? Talk about a close encounter right here.
