    Great shot, your wife gives this a sense of scale. Can’t help but notice the attention she is giving to her fellow swimmer…. No surprises.

  • Sharks don’t really care about divers. And this place is very famous for this species. Thank you John.

    Eye to eye ~ or vis-a-vis…. Johanna’s expression adds greatly to this atmospheric shot. Vivid & alert, to the shark’s neutral look. Excellent, Norbert!

  • My wive likes sharks very much, an the thrill when we meet them. Thank you.

    Fearless does not mean careless, yes? Besides, she has her brave husband behind the camera, nearby. Viewing your images, Norbert, is a bit like going to the circus to see the lion tamer put his head into the lion’s mouth and survive hehe.

  • There is one difference: My pictures are for free! Thank you Gary.

    Respekt! Tolle Aufnahme Norbert! Ihr zwei seid mutig ;o) Great Capture! :o)

  • Vielen Dank, aber so viel Mut braucht man dazu nicht. Als Schwimmer wollte ich diesem Tier aber nicht begegnen.
