Red Fish, Blue Fish

While traveling in Central America, Your Shot member Tracey Jennings dove in the waters off Costa Rica’s Cocos Island, a 36-hour sail from the mainland. “On this particular dive, at a site called Dirty Rock, I was mesmerized both by how remote and how beautiful the volcanic scenery was,” Jennings writes. “As we swam along, I looked up and noticed a school of horse-eye jacks spilling over the rock like a waterfall.”

Jennings’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot assignment Show Me Your Wilderness.
