Awesome Whaleshark Photo being considered for Nat Geo Magazine
Huge congrats to Dan Charity who went diving with our friends at The Life Aquatic in Samui last week! His fantastic Whale Shark picture made it in today's National Geographic Daily Dozen! The young Whale Shark was swimming in the Gulf of Thailand at a popluar dive site called Sail Rock near the island of Koh Pha Ngan. The brief encounter was was captured whilst diving the remote reef which the graceful giant was using as cleaning station, a sort of car wash for big fish. What makes this such a great shot is that while the whale shark might be moving slow, the school of fish that is surrounding the shark is moving quickly so as an underwater photographer you have to be prepared for this moment. Great work being prepared for this brief encounter.
Fingers crossed that it gets printed in the National Geographic magazine Dan!
