This was taken on one of those flat calm days, no current and the diver was just staying in one spot photographing shrimp. It was about 5 in the afternoon, sun was low in the sky, with the black sand there was no reflective light. As I watch the bubbles rize, I could see the surface reflection, so I swam back to the boat, grabbed the camera and captured one.

Thanks everyone for the feed back.
From memory I used a 60mm, about .5 meter, at F5.6/125th. Velvia film (Yes Film!)
It was part of a folio that won me first place, Australasian Underwater Photographer of the Year, in 1998.
So its nice to see it still stands up today.
Have a great festive season Posted Image
