Classic conditions at Rotto yesterday.
The best yet for the summer season and after a very enjoyable dive, I set out in the tender to get some shots.
As it turned out everything alined beautifully to make it possible for this image.
I had a light Easterly blowing and a low tide, but high enough to just let the tender drift with the motor up and I just did that.
I drifted for about 15 minutes pinging away with stunning scenes like this over the outer reef at Fayes Bay.
If the tide had been higher, the colours would not have been there, if the tide had been lower, I would not have been able to drift over the reef.
If the wind had been stronger, the colours would have been lost and if the sun was not in the same spot the colours would have been lost.
Timing is everything!
