moutain gorilla holidays PHOTOGRAPHY & WRITING BY IAN WOOD
About a month ago I was invited on a trip to photograph manta rays and whale sharks in one of the biggest feeding frenzies seen on our planet. The monsoon causes currents that lead to a massive bloom of plankton to form in a fringing reef in the Indian ocean. The whole area is only about the size of 2 football pitches but it fills with hundreds and hundreds of manta rays along with the odd whale shark passing through. Incredible !!! I've just got back and some photos will follow soon but I also shot some underwater video which has inspired me to upload my first You Tube video.
