I captured this image at a site called “The Arch”, on the west side of Ambon Island, in Indonesia. The image was shot with a Tokina 10-17mm lens, fully dialled out at 10mm. It was still fairly early in the morning, and the light had not yet migrated into the area where this arch is located, so there was no opportunity to try to capture a sun ball or rays in the composition. Still, I like the moody blues, and to be honest, these big wide angles are usually easier to expose without trying to deal with very strong light from the sun.
Also fortunate was that the large school of fusiliers was around (it was long gone by the time we dropped down to do a second dive on this site). There was quite a bit of current whooshing through the site on this dive, which perhaps encourages these fish to school like this. The current also makes it a worky kind of shot, and this site is not shallow (I believe I was at about 80 feet when I shot this image), so I was outta gas pretty prematurely on this dive ;^)
