Turtle swimming (half-under shot)

Turtle swimming (half-under shot)

view map

The hawaiian boy was looking at several of the turtles swimming around the lava reefs.
This was a difficult shot since I had to work with the 1-inch window of a Canon underwater housing, which was half-under water.
This picture was chosen as "Photo of the Week 2007" on the Onderwaterfoto site.

Canon PowerShot S400 ,Canon underwater housing
1/320s f/7.1 at 7.4mm full exif

other sizes: small medium original
