Miniature Melo - I wanted to show this 1/2" miniature melo in its environment. I floated below it in order to include both the seaweed its sitting on, and the seawall (in soft focus) in the background. Photographing macro in surge was...fun wink

"Enchanted Shipwreck" - Double exposure from inside the Nicholson shipwreck looking out. I photographed this in camera with sequential exposures. I love how the image draws the eye through and into the back of the scene.

Pipehorse Portrait - My first pipehorse! This little guy is less than an inch long, and is very hard to spot with an untrained eye. The background is white from my strobes reflecting off the sand.
