Freediving Siete Pecados by ferinasantos

Photo of the Day: Freedivers and Mermaids

It is said that mankind knows more about the outer space than earth’s ocean. Perhaps this mystery is the reason why we love images of the underwater world. Just the images, though, because we can’t really venture much below surface. Not with scuba diving; much more with free diving. Four seconds or so after submerging, the gag reflex takes over. We can never be graceful underwater, we thought. That’s why we remain in awe with beautiful sea photos like this graceful freedive in Palawan‘s Siete Pecados — courtesy of the lovely Ferina Santos (ferinasantos), a surfer and a diver (and, judging by the ease by which she glides underwater, perhaps a mermaid). Here’s the photo (click photo to enlarge):
