I met this group of fish in Playa del Carmen, Mexico…
I love them… They’re so curious… from time to time, one comes close at stares at you with its round eyes… they almost look like they want to talk to you !
Seeing them upwards in crystal clear water makes the sky appear in the background. It seems they’re flying !
On the upper right corner, the sunlight reflects on these shining fish. On the bottom left, others disappear in the deeper blue.
It looks like everything is the same color but it’s not at all. Finding the correct tones and shades was an exciting experience !
