Turtle-Back Ride

The thing that draws me to the ocean the most is that I never know what I’m going to come across on any given day. I count myself extremely fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time to capture this image.

This photo is a finalist in the Natural World category of our 14th Annual Photo Contest. See all 70 finalists here.
