Dead Fish


This dramatic photograph of a dead fish corpse with exposed sharp teeth was taken on New Zealand’s North Island at a beautiful Waipu beach. It was an eerie¬†experience as the beach is very long and yet we were the only people there, which seemed rather odd in the middle of holiday season.

Not discouraged by the lack of people we had the best time there. The beach was really fantastic, the water warm and there was a lot of interesting things to photograph. None as dramatic as this fish, which we discovered few hundred meters from our spot. It was about foot long, completely dried up from the sun and it featured rather threatening set of teeth.
