Masbangoes sunset

A ball of Masbangoes is moving from the shallow water towards the drop-off of the reef, at sunset. The moltitude of fish spend the day in the shallow water awaiting for dusk to move in deeper waters. After some days of taking photographs of this school of fish close to the shore, event that occurs once a year just for few days at the beginning of summer, I decided to take some overunder shots at sunset to have more dramatic light.
