A stunning black-and-white image of swirling bigeye trevally taken last year in Egypt has nabbed Alex Mustard a ‘Highly Commended’ in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

The photograph, shot in the waters off Ras Mohammed National Park at the bottom of the Sinai Peninsula, was taken on a Nikon D850 with a Nikon 28-70mm lens and Nauticam’s WACP, a super-wide-angle system which Alex helped develop, inside a Subal housing and using Seacam 150 strobes.

Alex – who will be announcing the winners and runners-up in the prestigious Underwater Photographer of the Year awards on the Main Stage at the GO Diving Show in February 2020 – said: “I am thrilled to be awarded in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest again this year.”
