This is my take on the famous Cenote "El Pit" in Quinatana Roo, Mexico. It has been photographed countless times, and I think it's pretty obvious why! Because the whole cavern dive is conducted in only one room, getting a clear image without an armada of divers is the main concern, so thanks to Marcelin of Under The Jungle for timing our dive perfectly! The other concern is making the sunrays stand out. To get a decent amount of light I took this image at 1/15 sec - handheld! Fortunately underwater we can get away with shutterspeeds much lower than what we would use on dry land!
