Shark and kayak

Thomas Peschak is a wildlife photographer who spends just over 3 months of the year in Cape Town  and the rest of the time travelling and taking photos around the world. He’s the official photographer for Save Our Seas. He has published several books and his work often appears in magazines such as The Dive Site (our recommendation of the magazine is here).

I came across this incredible photo he took in False Bay in 2003.

It’s been much analysed and dissected – many people thought it was Photoshopped, but it isn’t. The story of how he took the picture can be found on his website.
