A new view of the Philip­pines’ Gato Is­land.

Gato Is­land, Philip­pines ABOUT THE SHOT I was pho­tograph­ing two bat­fish dur­ing an ex­hil­a­rat­ing dive through this cav­ern­like struc­ture. For­tu­nately, I hap­pened to look up and saw this diver above. My at­ten­tion in­stantly switched to the diver. It took a bit of twist­ing and turn­ing on my part to frame the sub­ject. I got the shot us­ing a Canon 5D Mark III in a Nau­ti­cam hous­ing with a Canon 8-15 fish­eye lens at 8mm and Ike­lite DS 125 strobes. My set­tings were ISO 160, 1/160, f/10. The cir­cu­lar fish­eye lens cre­ates depth and pro­vides an in­ter­est­ing per­spec­tive.
