Finalist Human Connection Award: People & Planet Ocean
Pier Nirandara Bahamas
Atlantic spotted dolphins and a freediver in Bimini, The Bahamas. "Summertime can bring crystal clear conditions, allowing sunlight to penetrate the glassy surface down through the entire water column," says photographer Pier Nirandara. "This group of dolphins twirled and danced with us. There’s something magical about swimming with marine megafauna that wants you around."
