    Reported by:

    The Sardine Run along the East coast of South Africa had been described as the one of the biggest natural spectacles. And its easy to understand why once you have been there and have seen the ocean so full of life. Over fishing and especially illegal fish have negatively impacted on the Run over the last few years. This situation needs to be fixed asap for the vast importance it plays in the marine ecological system.

    It does not get more "pristine" than this. Great balance of strobe and ambient light (sardines are perfectly exposed). I can feel the energy of this moment, with all those sharks and boobies diving in.
