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.

"Timeless" is an image of Dusky dolphins taken of Cape Point on our way to the deep, it is pretty rare for them to hand around divers so this was an awesome opportunity to jump in and it paid off.

Strawberry anemones, a darker shade than usual and a bit smaller. These were almost a deep orange/red as opposed to the various shades of pinks I normally see.
