I spent 8 days diving with manta rays in the Socorro Islands of Mexico. My main objective was to capture the grace and beauty of the mantas swimming through the water. After several days of capturing images of single mantas swimming, my goal was to capture as many mantas in a single frame as I could. I was able to obtain several good images in the horizontal format of multiple mantas. My next goal was a little more challenging to capture multiple mantas in a vertical format without clipping any of the manta wings. This is my favorite vertical image.
