Before Sunset  by Norbert Probst

Every year in January I teach in Egypt, how to get pictures like this. During the last workshop I did this image at our training housereef in Makadi Bay.
Every day, close before sunset, this shoal bigeyes (Priacanthus hamrur) gives up the protection of the reef and goes on hunting in the dark.
This pic was cover-photo on “unterwasser” 03-2011, a german dive magazine.

Canon EOS 5D MKII, 4.0/17-40mm L, USM, Seacam housing, Seacam Seaflash (TTL-1), f9, 1/80s, ISO 100

Reds over the reef

Passionated, professional photographer since 1992 with worldwide publications in magazines, newspapers, calendars, prospects, advertising, internet and on products.
I am located in Nuremberg, Franconia, Bavaria, Germany, and my heart beats for marine wildlife.
