Clownfish at Far Garden, Red Sea

By Bexphoto      
Well I'm sitting in the airport at Sharm El Sheik waiting to return to an apparently rainy scotland :o( So since they have free wireless here, thought I would upload the first of my underwater shots from my fave diving holiday so far!

This one won photo of the week at the dive centre and I love it. It was taken at about 8m so the colours have come out well as it was fairly shallow so the water hasn't affected the light too much. The internal strobe was also used on the camera with a diffuser. And he was a great poser, much slower than the usual clownfish! Taken at the divesite 'Far Garden' in the Red Sea at Sharm El Sheik.

Tech details - f4.3, 1/160th sec, 6mm, taken at 8m deep with flash.
Red filter added in PS and usual curves, etc.

Thanks for looking!
