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.

Most probably one of the strangest and freakiest pictures I have ever taken, fishing vessel pulling in a load of anchovies, I decided to jump in and take a photo with 10 -22mm lens on 10 mm and this was the result. Hope you like it, one of a kind.
