2 & 3 are quite impressive. Can you tell us what you were using to capture these?
Did you manage to get your toes back in over the side before he got close

Were you dropping chum or was this just a fantastic bit of luck?

Also, where's the diving tank in the mouth of the Great White in picture three? It somehow seems incomplete without one. (this cinematic image from the summer of 1975 may not resonate with this photographic audience - sorry)

The first image would make a stunning large print I reckon.
Think it should be Skua and not Skewer by the way, perhaps it's a play on words!
The gear you use absolutely makes a difference!

@Colin - D3X with 70-200 VRII - I was about to hang my legs over the side of the boat - and then reconsidered
@Ann - chum is used - you cant see the sharks coming otherwise - you would never get shots like this
@Tom - yep the seal colony feeds the GReys. re scuba tank - I cloned that out
@Luc - grab a shot above and show me what you would have done - would like to see how I can improve my PP if you dont mind
(mmm sitting in another room of my house now and agree the pics are flat... have a go anyway if you like please)
@Oatsie - I am sure you are right (what do I know......)
@pluton - I think you shark is past it's expiry date.......

Feeling a little jealous, would love to get close to these, oh damn would I...

Did you see some Zambezi on this trip? How well do these respond to chumming? As scary as the White is, I would be more afraid of the Zambezi specially in inland canals and rivers.

#1 and #3 are my favourites - Mr. toothy in #3 doesn't leave much to the imagination for what they might be capable of...

as you say - handle with care.
