Unreal. That will be the curse of that shot. It is so awesome that people will be forever debating whether it is real or not. Simply fantastic. BTW...doesnt that just want to make you grab your surf board and head to South Africa? :lol:

Giles,
The Dolphin encircled by the sardines is a very cool shot.

You know, everyone should just get down to False Bay and book a trip. 4-5 days and you're bound to get a couple good breaches. You just have to be ready. :lol:
