This shot was taken during this years annual sardine migration. I had removed my strobes due to the backscatter and forgot to add weight, i was sat on the surface whilst my friends were seeing an awesome ball below, i was lucky to nail this shot.

A B&W rendition of one of my favourite sardine run images taken off shore of the wild coast, Transkei, Port St. Johns, South Africa. The Cape Gannet is truly an amazing bird and has adapted to its ocean life like no other.
