Every time I go to South Africa I meet a lot of cool people. This time I was lucky to dive together with Morne Hardenberg, true shark whisperer. During summer season he is enjoying break from his great white dives and engages into "light" play with cheeky blues at the Canyon. 2 hours I spent with him underwater were really productive in terms of amount of fantastic imagery featuring interaction of sharks and divers ! ^_^

This is last post in the "blue sharks week". Next week will be "sevengill sharks week" featuring more of my work from recent trip to Cape Town ! ^_^
