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.

Taken on Vetchies Pier - Durban's "Muck Diving" mecca....
It must be dived on high tide and at mid day to take advantage of ambient light.
Lots of sediment in the water so very light use of the strobe is recomended ! more to come from this place!
