Turtle in the sun by DevilDiver Turtle in the sun by DevilDiver
A sea turtle let me swim with him for about 10 minutes then he swam off into the sun. It was pretty sweet.

Hi, I was just wanting to know if you'd consider selling me a print of this shot. I'd just like a small photo size (6x4) as I'm trying to get a collection of marine related photos and this is one of the best I've seen of a turtle so far. If you don't want to sell me a copy, then fair enough - it is a great shot though and so are most of your other diving shots!

Ahh! Caretta Caretta. Allways reminds me of when I spent 15 minutes lying in the sand at 30m depth, petting a tortoiseshell turtle untill she fell asleep and I had to return back to earth. :D
I really like the composition. The non-centeredness makes it look really dynamic. Also the flash is perfect, not too much, just enough to bring out the colours.
Great shot, I wish it was a bit bigger though. :)
