Honorable Mention Wide-Angle
The story: The Atoll Banco Chinchorro is located 40 km east in front of Mexico's coast at the height of Puerto Bravo. There in the mangroves lives a large number of American salt water crocodiles. A small part of the animals, which are up to 7m long, have learned that the fishermen throw their waste into the sea while taking the catches. This is the reason why the animals come from the mangrove near the fishermen 's huts, in the hope to get something to eat there. The encounter with these animals was one of the most indescribable experience under water for me!
Location: Banco Chinchorro, Biosfera Reserva, Mexico
