3rd Place Underwater Conservation

 Gabriella Luongo

"Scar Neck"

Gabriella Luongo won an all-inclusive 7 night dive package for two at Anthony's Key Resort!


The Story: Sharks are constantly threatened by humans. This particular blue shark was swimming with a rope around its neck that had caused profound lesions in its skin. Luckily the two dive masters in charge managed to free the animal that continued to swim with us for the whole dive (maybe to thank us!) 

Location: Pico Island, Azores, Portugal 

Equipment Used: Nikon D810, Nauticam Housing, OneUW strobes, Sigma 15mm Lens

Camera Settings: ISO 600, F18, 1/200 sec
