On the Prowel

Taken at the Oregon Marine Aquarium, Newport, Oregon. I was in the walk through tube in the shark tank. I took a lot of shots to get this one and it is still not the best. It was very cool how the sharks were silhouetted against the light above.

At this point the Jaws theme tune is running through my head !!!...lol, what a great silhouette, and a very unusual subject to be caught like that without the need for a metal cage and diving suit !!!! Brilliant

I agree with you. A very cool pic. The fact that you can't see the tail is part of the danger and lurkingness of sharks.

Perry, sorry i took so long to finally get back after all those wonderful comments you left on my early photo's. This truly is amazing, you say you wish you wre better at photography but i think you are on a higher level than most of the blogs and photography sites and portfolios i've seen. What i love about this the most is the way the light just cuts through the water liking a guiding star(what a time to say it - near christmas) and it just enhances the power of the picture. Great work (Y). Troy

Great shot, the silhouette is awesome. I bet you were glad you were safe under glass and not in the water with him, although you would have to learn to swim :-)
Cool Shot!!!
