A blue shark from above. This image shows the beautiful sleek lines of one of UK waters rarely seen shark residents. Taken approximately 15 miles from Penzance, Cornwall on the the UK's southern coastline, the image portrays one of nature's incredible creatures, designed to be able to live in a very harsh environment. It is important to show striking images of sharks as they are an endangered species with hundreds of thousands slaughtered globally each year. Increasing awareness of their existence and beauty is becoming critically important if we are to save them for future generations. One of nature's assets.
