12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Diver engulfed in a school of fish

The diver in this picture swam underneath the school in a natural valley in the reef. It looks like the fish above are forming a roof to this valley, creating a "cave". The light gently reflects on the tank and fins of the diver which make it discrete in the photo.
