I wanted a shot of the stern of the Giannis D, but there were loads of divers on the wreck. Waiting until the last moments of the dive as everyone headed for safety stops I got this shot in peace and quiet!

Whale Shark and Dappled Light.
In the last few minutes of sunlight I was shooting towards the sun to try and capture the dappled light, hoping a whale shark would come through. This one obliged with my last frames of the day approaching sunset.
