Schooling hammerhead sharks.  Again.

Schooling hammerhead sharks. Again.

When you have been swimming in a few of these schools, seeing one or two pass close by is not such a big deal. I really cannot convey how magical it is to be there, and how "not dangerous" it feels. They show very little interest in us: it is almost as if we are not really there for them. They will open up to go around us, but otherwise completely ignore us.

Wow, I would freak out. I'm not comfortable under water, I get claustrophobic, but I can imagine how amazing this would be from your photo. I love your black and white conversions, it adds a mood or feel that you generally don't get from under water photography. V
