Jewelled Eye Flat Head

It’s 8 kilometres off-shore and 60 feet below waves reflecting a midnight sky. Sleepy critters hang in the watery darkness tolerant to the terrestrial visitor in their midst.

I am on my own down here and my strobes have just failed, … again. It is a recurring problem I’ve not gotten to the bottom of yet (sorry for the pun). Still all is not lost.

By firing up my backup torch and stopping down to f/1.4 I am still able to capture this Southern Flathead resting on the deck.

At this aperture and behind a domed port not much is in focus except for that beautiful jewelled eye at the centre of the frame.
