  1. Back in the early 90’s, when Belize was just a place for backpackers and expats, I went to Placencia and went diving in schools of thousands of fish. It was an amazing experience I wish I could have recorded. This image brings it right back for me. Thank you.

  3. Impressive. Especially like the defensive pose of the photographing diver – besides the size relations.
