Giant Black Sea Bass
I took this image of a Black Sea Bass in the California Channel Islands. The fish was several hundred pounds and about 5ft long. He swam up to me, gave me time to take a couple of images and then took off at high speed. I was pretty lucky to get as close as I did – I was all alone at about 50ft so he was probably checking me out without feeling too threatened.
The black and white conversion was done with Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro photoshop plugin.
