UPY 2017 Up & Coming - Highly Commended
'Tiger Beach' - Dave Baker

Fed up with getting fleeting glances of sharks and then seeing them disappear into the depths I decided to take a trip to Tiger beach in order to get up close to these magnificent creatures. I wasn't disappointed . I tried to capture as much of the experience as I could in one shot so positioned myself behind some coral with the boat on the surface. It was then a case of waiting for the Sharks to swim over with the added bonus of a diver descending from the boat as well.

Judge's comment: Alex Mustard: Three species of shark and a huge tiger shark dominating the frame. The coral and boat complete a very satisfying composition.
