These are the breathtaking underwater pictures captured by a marine life photographer in the wildest parts of the planet. David Doubilet's awe-inspiring images were taken in far-flung parts of the Antarctic and around exotic islands. The vibrant photographs range from cute Australian sea lions peering inquisitively into the lens to a terrifying Great White Shark opening its jaws in South Africa.
