In 2005 I sought an adventure. What happened transcended adventure and rose to majestic and astounding and left me with such a profound appreciation for the Great White shark that it would be years before I could even consider returning to see these creatures again, for fear that something might be lost in sharing their world once again. These photos capture their images but no image can capture true beauty. With no equal, with no predator, the Great White shark is not as has been portrayed in Hollywood movies and ridiculous TV shows. This creature deserves our admiration, respect, and protection.
