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.

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.
