I have just remembered that WP member Steve Jones has got the cover shot on this month's Diver (UK - for all you Canadians) magazine - with this stunning shot of a whaleshark.

Congrats Steve!

Thanks all,

That shot came at the end of what I'd call a "10 year history of failure" in trying to shoot Whalesharks. Flooded housings, mysterious camera errors, no film left - all the excuses under the sun ;)

That one was the dive of my life....

Nice clean shot (esp on your web page), no H. sapiens in there like many of those one sees published. How big was this fish? The remoras look relatively large? :lol:

It was a young one Tom, I'd estimate between 14 and 18 feet.

There's a shot here of the same shark, gives a bit more perspective on size....

I wonder how many have seen and photographed a young one? I especially like your shot that looks like it is taking a dive - nice blue gradation! :lol:
