Hawksbill Turtle and Sunball
Photographer: jim catlin
Location: Cobalt Coast, Grand Cayman
By getting low in the water and shooting up I managed to frame this hawksbill perfectly with reef and glowing sunball behind. A very wide angle lens ensured i could get close enough and a small aperture helped control the power of the sun in the background. This shots represents all that is great about Grand Cayman!
