Reef tip sharks swim over a channel in Tahiti.

It took me two trips to Tahiti to get this shot. The first time I went the weather was horrible. This past summer was magic and it was a blessing to have my patience pay off. I floated in the channel for over an hour to wait for this shot. It was hard to get the sharks, fish, and landscape all composed in the same frame. Thank God I decided to go to Tahiti twice in one year!
