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.

"The Order of Things" - Life in the ocean is so unknown, yet we fly to the moon, experiment on Mars, all our research is to find a human habitat in space in stead of understanding the ocean, an habitat that supports earth!!! A rather crazy notion!!!

I was out snorkeling when I became aware that something was following me. At closer in inspection it turned out to be this beautiful Honey Comb eel. It was literally tracking my movements and using these coral heads as cover.
