You’re out at the beach enjoying the wonderful storm clouds move slowly in front of you and then nature decides to throw a spotlight behind you into the mix as the sun is inching its way to the horizon. These are the experiences to cherish and remember!
It was a clear day in Raja Ampat’s Misool area. We were diving the famous Magic Mountain, a manta cleaning station. We were lucky that day, with mantas cruising up and down the ridge. This manta was heading straight at me, and I braced myself for the photo opportunity. In the last minute it changed its course and swam straight up, toward the surface. I had to quickly change the settings to adjust for the new level of light, and I managed to get this photo, the most graceful pose of this magical creature.
