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.

My final day after an awesome liveaboard adventure I spent a night on a nearby island, I found this beauty. We swam together for only an hour then parting because it was midday and I was starting to burn snorkelling. What a surprise and pleasure
