Alex Mustard - Reef Scene


This is one of my favourite shots from this year, it is pretty typical coral reef scenery, but photographed as a silhouette, with different layers of fish. I really like the effect, and it is not a shot I have seen done before.

The large fish is an adult blue triggerfish, while the smaller fish in the foreground are anthias. The long fish in the background are crocodile needlefish.

Location: Sinai, Egypt
