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.

he engine block of the Clan Stuart is above the water line at most times (except spring high tide), which provides a perfect resting point for a few species of seabird. We snuck up on them to take some shots but they were more curious than timid.

Macro shot of a fan worm, a unique kind of worm that lives within a tube and extends their feathery tentacles to filter feed. They are quite skittish and withdraw their tentacles when they sense your presence.
