Sea Turtle and surfer 2

Ho'okipa Beach, North Shore of Maui. I kept trying to get a certain shot of turtles with surfers passing overhead, though the conditions made it tough. As dusk nears, the turtles like to come in to feed, right under the surf line up (with turtles hovering literally a foot underneath surfboards at times, and surfacing to breath amongst the waiting surfers - its truly a lovely sight to see). If the vis was better there was the potential for a great shot of turtle and surfer and sunset (or afternoon light piercing the water). I only had a few days to try to get the shot though so it never quite materialized (due to water vis, only snorkeling, trying to stay out of surfers way, cloud cover, etc).
