|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Here's an application of the laws of refraction between water and air. Without the math formula, when underwater, you can either look through to the sky, or see a reflection of what's beneath - it all depends on the "angle of incidence".|
Here, I saw a water lily illuminated by sunlight AND reflecting from the underside of the water's surface. The dark background is a reflection of the lake mud.
Photographs are difficult when snorkeling unless you wear a weight belt to keep you from moving too much. As well, it is difficult to view the scene while wearing a dive mask.
I like this image for its colour contrasts and its overlapping shapes.

this a one heck of an excellent composition and your note explains well what is going on at the time of your shoot.I like the mellow amber hues in this picture,it really is a very sublime picture with a great point of view and gradation of colours. Bob
Beautiful John, this is excellent. To me it seems just slightly out of position, but I know you wanted to keep the patch of purple at the top to provide the contrast, so....very exotic.
