Hawaii, Big Island, September 4, 2006
It’s another regular training day when William Winram and US champion Deron Verbeck are joined by a curious oceanic white tip female shark. Both freedivers love and respect these creatures which are a vital necessity for the well-being of the ocean’s ecosystem.
They decide to immortalize this moment by taking photos, not an easy task considering how fast the subject is moving ! In the end, it’s Deron who takes the nicest shot of both the shark and William trying to photograph her.
A lot of myths about sharks still persist to this day. If you would like to broaden your awareness about these creatures, check out the following links:
