16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Another planet

Swimming through the pitch black Cenotes (underground caves) in Mexico and all of a sudden, a break in the clouds and the sun comes piercing down through a small opening in the roof above. Like laser beams from the sky this scene was almost like something from another planet and absolutely stunning to watch.
