I bought 2 of her photos - both in as large a print size as I could afford. They are currently waiting until I can save the money to frame them. Here is one of them - 3 Oval Squid - in electric colors. So beautiful! (Click on words to go to the link).
The second photo we bought is called "Feeding Station". I love the turtle faces she has captured in her dives!
Cynthia's photos are one-of-a-kind, and not too expensive if you are looking for a wonderful and unique gift. She ships all over the world, so be sure to contact her if you are interested. She is easy to "talk" to, and very accommodating!
I got to take pictures of sea turtles feeding in the water - from above the water, not in it. Standing on the shore, on slippery rocks, my friend Donna and I stood taking pictures for long periods of time... The photos are not from underwater like Cynthia's, but the abstract patterns of the turtles' shells and flippers were amazing! The water is so very clear that you can see all of this from above the water line. I plan to paint several of those. If you wait long enough, the turtle lifts its head out of the water to breathe, and you can get some nice photos of their markings...here is one of my pics of that for you to enjoy!
