Winter air bring the sharks in close. Lemon Sharks visit the surface for a chance to nibble on some dead fish. Jupiter FL on my mind

Divers explore  Orange Canyon   a dive site named for its gorgeous  bright orange elephant ear sponges. I dialed up the shutter speed a bit to make the blue a darker shade  in order to provide more contrast against the orange.

One of the best dives along the seawall. I like to take a heading of 270 until it drops off then follow the wall to the right. Good wall dive that goes down to around 70 ft. with soft coral and nudis. I've also seen octopi here several times. Interesting rock formations too (some people compare to Yonaguni, but I don't agree).
