Underwater photography in Bimini, Bahamas
In January I traveled to Bimini in the Bahamas to attend a workshop with Alex Mustard to photograph the great hammerheads around the island of Bimini in the Bahamas
Whilst lovely and warm the winter in the Bahamas can be windy, and so it proved. We lost a couple of days to the weather and had a challenging few days finding the sharks but we did manage to get a few good dives with them. Also in the shallow sand waters were plenty of nurse sharks.
A challenging trip but several rewarding experiences. The great hammerheads are truly amazing (and huge) animals.
