The Morning Run http://www.christinahepburn.com/blog/2016/2/the-morning-run  

At Alcyone, Isla de Cocos, Costa Rica, reside the hugest school of Bigeye Trevally that I've ever seen.  To be with them is such a blessing and I can never stop trying to capture their magnificent show of Oneness.  I called this moment  "The Morning Run.

Manta in Dappled Light http://www.christinahepburn.com/blog/2015/11/manta-in-dappled-light The mantas were feeding during a late afternoon dive.  The softening sunburst was just perfect and magical.  I positioned myself at around 20 feet below the surface, and waitied for the right opportunity.  Then I was gifted with a manta that gracefuly swam right into my designated sweet spot.  -  "Manta in Dappled Light" - German Channel, Palau
