Beautiful picture! I can see it in animals and sea contest, but I hardly understand why it's in the "energy" contest, could you please clarify so I can vote it please? Thanks so much. Great gallery!

Greatwhitesean August 08, 2016
Hi. Sorry for late reply. I have been super busy and only just got back on ViewBug. I am not actually too sure why it is in the Energy category. I think I may have entered it by mistake thinking it was another category. Thinking outside the box though you could say water energy. ;). Thank you I appreciate your comments and glad you like my gallery

So, I have to know.......You have absolutely no fear in a moment like this?? Please describe what you were feeling at this moment. Thank you.

Excitement coupled with calmness. Staying calm so I can line up the shot and knowing this shark isn't there to attack me. It's inquisitive but as long as stay calm the situation is a good one.
