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.

Wow, one of my favorites. Your second Orange over Blue shot, maybe I have a weakness for this color combination. Very well taken.

This image shows a huge school of glass fish gathering together to "create" size and to use the reef as natural protection from predators. A wonderful sighting to see as they move in organised chaos creating the most amazing patterns.

Had an amazing dive in Sodwana on a reef called Roonies, we were very fortunate to find a whole load of juvenile fish finding refuge around a section of reef, this was one of the images taken.
