Cabo Pulmo National Park, Mexico.

Cabo Pulmo National Park is a marine success story. Only twenty years ago it was protected by the Mexican government as a reserve. Within that time its had one of the fastest grow backs of marine life anywhere in the world.

Shots like this are generally termed as half in half out or splits. I wanted to capture the Sonoran desert coastline from the sea. However, rather than take a normal shot from the boat, I realised when diving there that it would be nice to take a shot of what it looks like from my dive mask. When we surface the deep blue suddenly appears below.. its beautiful. I only wish there had been a whale shark in front of me at the time.
