When a wave breaks on a reef, she becomes a beachcomber. The underwater view offers incredible scenery, such as a thunderstorm. The force of the water pushes you back and forth, which makes you loot the reefs. Long Island in the Bahamas is located on the Tropic of Cancer. Between strong Atlantic ocean and the quiet Caribbean sea, the contrast is outstanding. The place is a shallow lagoon separated from the ocean by a reef barrier. When we arrived on the spot to make pictures of freediving in the big blue, the sea was unleashed. It seemed very difficult to cross the reef because of the very strong waves. We approached and attempted to pass the other side in immersion. It was impossible because the waves were too strong but we discovered an incredible underwater show. We stayed several hours at this place to realize this image. The great difficulty was the coordination between the wave, the model and the photographer.
