Light Rays on Ocean Bottom, Abstract Photo

By May 1, 2009January 6th, 2019Abstract, Bahamas, Underwater Photography

I made a number of trips to the Bahamas to film Olympic champion swimmers and wild dolphins. While we were roasting in the Bahamian sun, waiting for dolphins to appear, we could swim as much as we wanted in the clear shallow waters of the Little Bahama Banks. I really enjoyed watching the sunlight move over the white sand bottom, and took many photos during those trips trying to capture the beauty of those patterns. Today’s abstract photo, #5 of 15:
