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.

This shot of two manta rays came at the end of a liveaboard dive trip in the Maldives. The pair seemed to be performing a courting ritual that went on for ages and were oblivious of me

this shot of a wall of fish was taken at the Busselton jetty, which is a dive site close to where I live in Western Australia. I try to dive here once per year as it is a good easy dive and there are usually plenty of fish as this shot indicates!

A funeral feast - whelks feeding on a dead insect. Walking along the beach I came across this macabre scene. Only managed to get in a couple of shots before a wave washed it all away.
