A Higher Power

Uploaded: October 10, 2004


This photo was taken in Grand Cayman at depth of 30ft, looking up through crystal clear, blue water into a bright sunball...an awe-inspiring moment for me.

It was taken with a Nikonos 15mm lens, which is a corrected lens for underwater use, and using ambient light only to catch the sun rays and the silhouette of the coral formations. Shot on F16; however, since I was bracketing my shots, I can't remember if the shutter speed was 90 or 125.

I hope you enjoy this.

Kimberly, thank you for such a high compliment. Just took a peek at your wonderful photo gallery. You do a great job of people photography, which to me is difficult. Where do find such gorgeous models!?! #833308
