Tree Above a Cenote

Tree Above a Cenote - Mexico, 2009

The Yucatan Peninsula has a vast network of underground rivers. When a sinkhole breaks through the surface providing access to a river network it is called a cenote. The sinkhole is often used as a swimming hole and when diving is allowed it is the means of access to the underground river. As I was surfacing from the dive I spotted this tree through the water while two fish were swimming by. See also Cenote Formations.
