Again, the sea became our playground playing with the beams of sunlight penetrating the ocean's surface. It's only fair that with all the digital warm, fuzzy feelings you guys sent me yesterday on my birthday that I do something a little bit special. So I decided to call for reinforcement to add a little flair to one of my favourite underwater shoots.

This particular shoot was not what we had originally planned, but alas, as with many location shoots, bad weather meant a change of plans. Even though we were expecting sharks, colourful schools of fish and manta-rays to swim amongst, we had to settle for deep blue water but with a surprising twist- with the addition beautiful beams of light streaming in from the midday sun. Silver lining, people. I've been patiently waiting to share them with you all here on this wonderful blogosphere Miss Jones calls home, I hope it inspires you to jump in the ocean or swimming pool yourselves, tag me online if you do!

Thank you for making my day even better!
