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.

After the South Easter has been pumping for a few days in Cape Town, the Atlantic waters drops a good few degrees and you start to wonder if you are in water or ice.

~ Out and About ~
Normally Pajama shark prefer terrain which gives them more cover than this sandy open stretch. Maybe this one was planning what it will be getting up to during the night ahead.

With winter fast approaching Cape Town, diving will be moving from the Atlantic side to False Bay. With our first taste of what the winter might hold this past Sunday, it should come as no surprise that we welcome winter with open arms.

The rhinophores of either the Janolus capensis or Janolus longidentatus. I say either as its impossible to tell these two apart unless you seen laying their egg mass.
