1) Beyond your wildest dream in Mexico

SEIFERT.WhaleSharks C7 opt

 'As it turned out, it was a perfectly glorious summer with no real tropical storms, so I ended up spending 25 days, four to five hours a day, snorkelling with whale sharks in blue water with mostly good-to-great visibility. I had a camera with me at all times – it is force of habit – but after the first few intense hours with literally dozens of whale shark close encounters, one tends to focus less on photography. You lose sense of time and worldly concerns and float in a perfect cocoon of a truly great, out-of-this-world, magical experience. I did make a few images (okay, a few, er, um, thousand images) but the experience surpassed anything a camera could ever possibly record.'
