agree with stunning and beautiful, and great colors...what kind of camera takes underwater pics like this? #112805

Jay Ailworth May 26, 2019

Jean, the shot is not an underwater photograph. I shot this over the side of a dive boat off Lanai before our first morning dive when a pod of Spinner Dolphins joined us. The camera is a Nikon D100. #113587

Even more amazing! This is so beautiful! #113601

Serena, Jean, Evy, Mette
Thank you! I was surprised when I was a finalist with this shot and did not think it would have the staying power to place since there were so many wonderful shots in this catagory. It is a good feeling to have my work (play, fun, passion...) recognized.
