Andrew says:
‘I took this image in March 2018 at dusk in a bog pool high on the Long Mynd in Shropshire. I wanted to show the frogspawn in context, which gave rise to a huge technical challenge in matching the exposure for underwater and sky. I resorted to using an underwater housing, tripod and a couple of small lights to illuminate the frogspawn. Two exposures were focus stacked later, to show the above and below scene as accurately as it appeared at the time. I should add I got very cold hands setting this shot up!’
