For those who don't have much time to visit an aquarium or to enjoy marine life out in its natural environment, photographer Reynaldo C. Obrero has got you covered with today's photograph. Obrero snapped this action shot in black and white at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, capturing the light in the water while a group of fish swam upward.

"One of the most striking things you'll see when you first walk into the entrance is the three-story Blue Cavern exhibit," Obrero wrote in an email. "I made my way to the front [of the tank] and took this shot while looking up.  It turned out to be one of my favorites since it captured the dramatic light and the movement of life inside the tank."

Obrero took this photo with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera using a 12-50 mm lens.
