The winning photograph is a Shark shot from my 2013 trip to Tiger Beach Bahamas during the liveaboard trip. The one thing that makes this photograph unique is the not common shark pose as the shark is lay in the sand with jaws wide open with a cleaner taking care of his teeth. I was counting on this photo to be among the winners because of composition, the act of natural behavior and the great visibility that Bahama’s waters offer.
This was the first award I won this year and I wish it will be the start for good news to keep coming! I want to thank the jury for the result and congratulate all others participants because there are great photographs among the winners and very familiar underwater photographer names in the list.
