George's shot was taken off the coast of Northern Ireland. ‘I encountered this playful dolphin that suddenly started to surf the deep tube inside the waves. Each time the dolphin got into the wave, I dived underneath, held my breath and waited for the moment when he would swish through a silver barrel close enough to my lens,' he says. ‘I was very lucky to get a shot like this.'
