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.

"Escape...for now"
This image somehow intrigues me and I keep on going back to it, starring at it. It does not make sense, in terms of "rules"....it breaks most of them, but still draws me in, I find a strange fascination when staring at it........

"In the Eye of the Beholder”
Always been intrigued by the Canon EF 8–15mm on a full frame, but the idea of incorporating a circle into your image with black surrounds and making it work, gets tricky....I think I got this one right!
