    This is absolutely awesome pictures! I really love the last whaleshark swimming away. There is something simply beautiful about them, so big and gentle. I have still to see my first underwater. It is the biggest diving dream for me.

    Thanks to all the great photographers.

      Hi Martin,
      Thanks. The whale shark is an amazing animal. I can only agree with you, and there’s something iconic of it swimming away in the picture.

    Hi Torben; lovey pictures! I think Emma’s ‘pregnant belly’ is better than ‘pregnant stomach’.. (-: Cheers
