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.

This photo was taken on a house reef in the Maldives, in an attempt contrast the beauty at the surface and the devastation of the coral bleaching below. It's hopefully an alarming, appealing and educational photo at the same time.
