    Blacktip sharks cruising the shallow sandbars off the coast of Moorea. This is a very unique spot filled with dozens of small blacktip sharks and rays all hours of the day. This shot took me about a week to get after fighting rain, heavy winds, and constant overcast. On my last day in moorea I finally got a window with prime shooting conditions. the water was so clear this morning it almost seemed that the sharks war floating, rather then swimming.
