I don’t think we’ve ever looked forward to summer more than we have in 2021. What a joy it is to feel the sunshine on our skin and the sand between our toes.

Photographing shoals of bib (Trisopterus luscus) can be a challenge, as these striped fish are highly reflective and change direction constantly. One summer, photographer Matt Doggett was drifting through crystal clear waters over an area of huge boulders off the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. ‘The boulder-tops were covered with red seaweeds, sponges and antenna hydroids,’ says Matt. ‘Suddenly I was joined by this small shoal of bib, which swam alongside and just in front of me for several minutes. They bunched together nicely, allowing me to snap away as we floated along in the gentle current. It’s wonderful, relaxing dives like this that give you fond memories of diving around the British Isles and keep you coming back for more.’ Matt was inspired by the Marine Conservation Society’s Seasearch scheme,…
