The picture was taken by Albert Kok, and he has loads of other great sharks pictures you can see right here.

Baskin Shark


This is a beautiful example of the beauty of sharks. This Baskin Shark was captured by underwater photographer Charles Hood just off of Cornwall, England. You can find more pictures of his and it might be worth considering a trip to Cornwall.

This black and white picture of a free diver meeting a whale shark has something magical about it.

Shark Bundle

Here you’re seeing a group of Caribbean Reef Sharks circling their next meal. And no it’s not the divers, but the shark food they have in the box in the middle. This is a picture-perfect example of Shark feeding. The pros and cons of shark feeding are widely debated. Picture by Manda Nicholls.

A Pointy Blue Shark

You’ll find this beautiful shark in deeper sub-tropical waters that never get very warm. And though this one looks very sweet it’s one of those you better stay a bit clear of, they are known to get a bit aggressive.

Whale Shark Feeding

This is the perfect image of Humans and Nature working side by side. This Whale shark is eating the fish that the fishermen caught. It has become a very popular attraction for divers in Cenderawasih Bay, West Papua Province, Indonesia.

This picture was taken by Paul Cowell

Sunlight and Sharks

White shark from inside a cage

It’s very common to dive down in a cage to see the great white shark, but here the shark is getting jealous and trying to get in.

The perfect timing was by Stefan Pircher

Just as Shark Week is ending so too is this Tribute to Sharks with this brilliant picture of a Whale Shark Swimming Away. It was taken by Mohamed Seeneen. See more of his pictures and follow him here.

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

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.
