Galapagos Shark Love

I'm honestly not sure exactly what these two sharks were doing, but I was excited to be able to capture it. Thanks for looking and for comments/critiques.

Killer shot!!!

This shot deserves nothing less than a 7 for originality but the system won't allow it. I'll get back to it later.

Thanks guys for your kind words. I'm stoked to be complimented by photographers/divers of your class. Cheers.

It would be noteworthy enough just to comment on your ability to get a shot underwater that looks so good. Then the fact you're underwater with sharks is an amazing thing unto itself... then to add on that you caught this at just the perfect time to highlight very interesting behavior of sharks. Very impressive capture.

I have no diving experience, but this seems like it must be a once in a lifetime (or two) shot!

This photo was taken through the bars of a shark cage 3 miles off the island of Oahu, HI. I have an underwater housing for my 5D. Thanks for the comments and ratings everyone, it makes me proud to hear positive feedback from fellow photographers and divers alike. Cheers, -Mathew Cook-
