"Fade" by Gregory Sherman.

Stingrays swim over rippled sands in this award-winning image from photographer Gregory Sherman. Above this peaceful vista, waves break and a dramatic skyscape looms. It’s the regular back-and-forth of the waves that shapes the ripples of sand. The rays can also use the sand for cover; note the remnants of sand atop a few of these rays, and then see how they hide themselves.
