At the Barcelona Aquarium there's a long tunnel underneath their main, huge tank. You stand on the conveyor belt (which is made of curved panels of wood - very retro) and it takes you on a journey past sharks, rays, hammerheads and all sorts of other fish that I've never seen before. Strangely, none of them attack each other.

It took me ages to get this shot just right. There wasn't really any shortage of sharks going past, but getting one in just the right part of the frame was tricky, as was getting a sharp shot; as you can tell from the settings, it was pretty dark down there.
