Thousands of sardines swim for their life as they circle a hungry shark who is looking forward to a tasty lunch.  Starving sharks, dolphins, cape gannets and whales can be seen queuing up before pouncing on the huge school of fish that zooms past.<br />
<br />
The fish are taking part in their annul commute along the South African coastline - an event known as the 'sardine run'.  Photographer Mark van Coller, from Cape Town, South Africa, travelled to Port St Johns to witness the spectacular event.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
