These snappers were hanging effortlessly in a strong current. I had to swim like crazy to stay in the same place and wait for them to shift their formation to get a good composition. I love the way this image looks so serene and still, yet all I can remember is how fast I was breathing and how hard I was swimming! Great Barrier Reef, Australia.

    I love the shape that the fishies have formed – seems to allow the eye to flow across the image.
