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.

~ Its the Little Parts which Forms the Bigger Picture ~
Diving with shoals of fish is a dream past time of mine, but not so easy to capture a photo which is not just a photo of a school of fish. Having all the little ones form a much bigger fish.

Wonderfully curious, ridiculously energetic and wildly mischievous. South Africa's Cape fur seals bring a smile to every divers face.

'The view from below'. Broadnose sevengill shark, broad snouted sevengill, ground shark, Pacific seven-gill shark, spotted cow shark and Tasmanian tiger shark are just a few of the names given to this 'wolf of the sea'.

~ Hammerhead Crab ~
Spotted this decorated crab with a piece of orange sponge part of its decoration. The shape of which reminded me of the head of a hammerhead shark and a character in Pirates of the Caribbean smile

Wonderfully prehistoric, the Broadnose Sevengill Shark is easily identified by the unique seven gills and its broad head and blunt snout.
