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.

Seven-gill Sharks are considered the oldest living shark specie around. This makes a dive with them in the kelp forest so much more special as it feels like you have been transported to another place and time!

Diver descending on the wreck of the Boss 400. The ship wrecked at Duiker point, close to Sandy Bay, after the tow rope snapped. Part of the ship still protrude above the waterline and that is what is visible in the background.

Cathedral is a favourite spot for the Raggies of Aliwal Shoal to hang out, these ladies have been here way to long and I suspect they may not be leaving till the next season passes.
