This weeks 52 Frames was Shoot from Below. The week of the challenge coincided with my return to Lord Howe Island - this time with the family.
On the island you can feed fish in the shallows of Neds Beach - and I used this as a chance to photograph some fish from below. I weighted a pole with a GoPro on it and let it rest on the sand in the shallows - as the fish swam over the camera I triggered the video, later I extracted some still images from the video file. It was all rather good fun - and the kids loved feeding the fish!
The fish are Silver Drummer - and they do not make good eating I am told! The local name for this fish is Stinker, due to the fact that they poo everywhere if you do catch them and that they stink! So, as a table fish they are not on the menu!
I will be trying to catch up with comments etc over the weekend. Cheers - SM
