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.

One of the best things about diving is meeting new friends... especially when they come swimming up to you to tell you they have found something you might find cool.... I love the diving community xx
