Big animals — we're talking whales, manta rays and sharks — roam the Eastern Pacific waters off Mexico’s Revillagigedo Archipelago, otherwise known as the Socorro Islands. David Valencia, a divemaster and photo pro for the Solmar V live-aboard, is fortunate to dive and photograph in these islands throughout the year. The result? An astonishing and gorgeous collection of big-animal images, as this gallery shows. For more of David's work, check out david-valencia.com
