    A school of fish I was using for cover scatters as hammerheads stalk through the area. With dark and nutrient filled waters, subject to swift current and rough seas, it was some of the most challenging and exciting diving of my life. Diving there made me realize how essential it is to show people the beauty and necessity of the ocean, how vital it is to protect and preserve it for our survival.

    I agree with Your Shot photographer Ivan Lesica who commented, "Love the explosion of underwater life !!! Love the lighting and the way the majestic hammerheads glide through the ocean ...WOW!" This is awesome Kimberly. Fantastic energy. I love your caption, I bet this was an inspiring experience witnessing this scene. Well done.
