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.

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.
