2nd Place Cold Water

Tyler Schiffman

Santa Monica, USA



Tyler won a 6 night dive package at Aiyanar Dive Resort in Anilao, Philippines!


The Story: I was diving the break wall in Monterey bay and this week in particular had over 40 foot vis for 3 days straight.  I had been shooting kelp bursts all day as the light was exploding amongst the canopy above.  I had framed this shot waiting for a sea lion to swim by. After 5 minutes, one swam up and paused for a few seconds, I took 3 photos and as rare as it was the moment left in a blink of an eye.

Location:  Monterey bay, United States

Equipment Used:  Sony A7R II, Nauticam Housing, Sony 16-35mm Lens

Settings: F14, 1/200 sec, ISO 1000
