GALA­PA­GOS: THE GREAT­EST SHOW ON EARTH

Scuba Diving - - GEAR BAG -

I’m hold­ing the rocks, scan­ning for ham­mer­heads. Walls of fish block my view. I know that ham­mers are shy, so I stay at the edge, just out­side a clean­ing sta­tion. Out in the blue, they come. Not dozens, hun­dreds. I slow my breath­ing and move for­ward. They are com­ing in waves, a puls­ing wall of ham­mer­heads pass­ing just a cou­ple of yards away. Mag­nif­i­cent.” —DAMIEN MAURIC, UN­DER­WA­TER PHO­TOG­RA­PHER
