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.

A black tip slowly cruises past with the late afternoon sun glistening on her back, just something so surreal about this image and actually witnessing the moment in the water.
