I told you I don't have it with me here. It's on the server and I'll have to access on a slow line. I'll send it to you sometime when I get home.


Sorry, my English skills seem to deteriorate at night ! :D Thanks !

I seriously think you guys need to get these shots into a book. They are amazing images. I am sure you would make a few out of it.

I think wetpixel quarterly will feature some of the guys' pics (not mine).

For those who wanted video, I don't think my videos will stand up to my bud Didier's so here is his work:



And here he is complaining about sharks... yet again..

Very cool; think the color of his fins has anything to do with the sharks trying to chew on them? They look pretty similar to the prey.

I ban bright colored (eg: yum yum yellow) fins on my boat. BUT in this instance the shark was lunging at the fish and Didier was in the line of the lunge. That's how most of the encounters go and if people don't pay attention, it's pretty hairy out there ( like that shooter who has 20+ stitches in 2007 to show for his stupidity in looking at the vf too long, in bad viz no less!)
I always say it's not all fun and games once you have big predators involved. Fortunately, most people will be in boats full of people and will probably not have such encounters. :turtle:

wow, just absolutely fantastic guys! I think I would be a bit timid out there with all that but would love to see it one day. Thanks for sharing!

Amazing.
Having seen such great photos, I decide to spend my every pennies to buy a new DSLR housing for my 5dm2.
