In one corner of the Car Wash Cenote, I saw an opportunity to include several elements in a single image: lily pads, crystal-clear blue water, the rocky cenote edge, tree roots, and a nearly perfect reflection off of the water's surface. Positioning myself with all elements converging in the viewfinder, I captured this simple yet intriguing image.
HOW I GOT THE SHOT:
I used a Nikon D800 in a Nauticam housing, Sigma 16-35mm lens, Zen 230mm dome port, and no strobes; ISO 400, 1/125th, f/9. Using a rectilinear wide-angle lens allowed the straight lines of the lily pads to be captured without distortion.
