tickling the fish

The weather's oppressively hot, and there were rumbles of thunder in the distance. I remembered the thunderstorm we were caught in on Karen Bravo, off the Ebro delta on the Catalan coast, in 1982. I was down at water level, leaning out of the gun deck hatch, watching as each flash of lightning caught countless fish, frozen in mid-leap. I guess they were being tickled by the electricity.

So that's what I had a go at capturing, in this picture.
