Turtles swimming at sunset
24-DEC-2003

Turtles swimming at sunset

At Kiholo Bay, very cool fresh-water from the surrouding lava fields makes its way
into the warm tropical salt water of the bay, forming two layers that give this scene
its characteristic blue-green opalescence. Turtles use this remote area to rest after
an exhausting day after foraging underwater for Limu (seaweed), their main diet.

    This is a super photo, unlike any other shot of turtles that I've ever seen. The colors, crystal clear water and turtles that appear to be in flight under the surface are sublime.
