Your mask fell in the water, what do you do?? ;) When you get your scuba certification part of the training is having to take your mask off underwater and putting it back on, which if you wear contacts(like I do) this means doing it with your eyes closed(contacts will float out). I didnt have a problem with it but I know a few friends have had a lot of anxiety with this part of the training, it can be a pretty daunting and scary experience for a beginner. This is what I think some people imagine happens as soon as their eyes are closed haha.

Big moments at 1/250 second. Before any trip or expedition I'm full of that excited kind of what's going to happen anxiety. I try to visualise shots in my head what I want to achieve, what angles could be best, what stories I want to tell.... Then all of sudden the time comes you're there and it's like nothing you expected and the plan is.. there is no plan. Just you and an old 15m pregnant whale shark that came out of no where. 📸 Photo by @toddthimios toddthimios.com
Words by @gatorboys_chris Got a caption for this shot?? I absolutely love this photo I took of a great hammerhead in the Bahamas, what an absolutely incredible and alien looking creature!!! This strange perspective is just before she swam over me, these bizarre sharks have got to be my favorite to see. I was trying to think of a cool caption for this unique view, something like "take me to your leader" since it looks so strange! Hammerheads are incredibly agile and alert with a surprisingly tight turning radius despite their large size. The bizarre hammer shaped head allows the shark to detect electrical signals via the ampullae of lorenzini across a greater gradient than a normal round shark face. Photographed while out with @reefhunter with a Canon 70D, 10-22mm wide angle lens, Aquatica housing and Inon strobes.

The ocean is one of the last (relatively) quiet places on earth. In a world of more than 7 billion people, where every inch of land has been mapped, much of it developed, and too much of it destroyed, the sea remains the final unseen, untouched, and undiscovered wilderness. One of the last great frontiers.
