    Gorgeous photos! I love pics like this, there's something so eerie and surreal about them, so beautiful.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    i have to admit, snorkeling or deep sea diving has never intrigued me. while i admire dolphins and whales and wouldn't mind seeing them close up, the idea of being around other marine life in their own habitat would scare the begeebers out of me. not to mention being that far underwater.
