This is just one shot.

It was shot at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan.

The main tank called the ‘Kuroshio Sea’ holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.

The music is “Please Don’t Go” by Barcelona. Buy this song on the iTunes store.

This was shot using a Canon 5DMKII with a 28-135mm lens.

THERE IS SUCH INCREDIBLE LIFE IN OUR OCEANS….WE MUST PROTECT THEM!

I present to you, the CIA agent whose looks could kill … literally:

If you’ve never watched Chuck, or want to go over the episodes again, Hulu has all the shows available.
