20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Art of light and reflection

I carefully photographed a mother and child swimming slowly near the surface of the sea so as not to miss the ever-changing patterns and reflections of the light. I especially think the patterns on their tails are the most beautiful, so I aimed for an angle where their tails stand out. I felt that there was no need for color anymore, the beauty of the formative art that cannot be expressed in words.
