Wow, I lived in that area for five years, visiting as many cenotes and ruins as possible and I'd never heard of this one. How spooky-cool. I wish I'd known about it!
Well timed. Getting the shot as the swimmer is in the ray of light and in a position that looks like she's dancing. Great contrast with death in the foreground and life in the background.

There must be a Shakespeare reference in here somewhere, but I just can't find any about snorkeling.
I really like the lighting in this, but find it hard to believe that the skulls were not put there deliberately by the photographer - Paul Nicken. This removes the serendipity and spontaneity of the photo - which is a shame.
