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.

Admiring the Sun
Black Tip Shark photographed close to Aliwal Shoal. The water was not the cleanest, but I like the "reality" the green adds to the photo, as deep blue super viz is not the reality for most divers.
