4th Place Black & White

"Shark Constellation"

The Story: 

We found this young whale shark during a diving trip in the south part or Raja Ampat National Park. He spent hours circling around us feeding on small schooling glassfish. I took this photo a few seconds before he vanished in the blue, with the white spots of its livery drawing the silhouette like a constellation.


Raja Ampat, Indonesia
