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.
