Sean Scott was traveling to Western Australia shores of Red Bluff, near Quobba last year. He knew that a big surf is coming up and this remote spot is pretty famous for being the place where the desert meets Indiana Ocean.
But, Sean did not expect the sea to be so brimming with life that it was literally crowded despite having very few visitors at the time.
Groups of Bronze Sharks were on a feeding frenzy and Sea could immediately notice a big school of ball bait defending itself from the predator. Sean couldn’t believe his eyes and was eager to jump into taking the pictures already. But he had to help set up the camp.
Although, it didn’t last for more than 30 minutes.
Sean immediately got his drone flying to get some amazing bird-eye shot of the phenomenon.
The seemingly mysterious clump of black thing is a school of fish forming into a ball bait. This is their last line of defense to protect themselves against predators.
Sean noticed that the school of fish was getting close and the sharks were visible as they rode the waves. He landed his drone and decided to see if he could get a clear shot of the sharks. After he got his camera settings right, he was ready to get one of the most phenomenal shots of the day.
And yes! He caught some of the most phenomenal shot of the day, showing two sharks riding a wave that was about 2.5 meters high.
Sean was glad about what he got and it just seemed like he got addicted to the coast. This time, he’s planned longer road trips around Queensland. “This was a great example of being in the right place at the right time and having my gear ready to go.”, Sean recalls.
