1st Place: Lemon Shark Sunset, Grand Bahama


As the sun was setting, I wanted to capture a quiet moment with one of the lemon sharks we had been photographing that afternoon. This particular shark was just as curious as I was, and what an amazing moment I was able to capture! His eye above the surface stares back at me, as if to show me he's watching, too. Below the surface his mouth was just slightly open, showing off his sharp teeth.
