Sting Ray City
A spotted cleaner shrimp spaces out on the tip of a purple anenome.
105mm with SMC
"Sand Castles"
A Spotted Eagle Ray digs in the sand in search of a meal.
"Two Way Street"
Southern Stingrays glide across the sandy bottom of the Sandbar.
No Photoshop. One of the MOST incredible days ever on Grand Cayman. I exposed so the white sand slightly overexposed the image. I pressed down onto the sand looking up so the pink of the conch reflected on the surface with the bright blue sky.
"That Face Though!"
Secretary blenny with shallow depth of field.
"Black Beauty"
This very large Black Grouper has been hanging out around the northwest point area of the island.
"Flight Position"
A Hawksbill Turtle makes big fins off the reef and towards the surface.
"Turtle Time"
A Hawksbill Turtle swims along the edge of the wall on the West Side of Grand Cayman. Very rarely do you not encounter one of these extremely friendly turtles, especially when diving the west side.

Great composition, angle and lighting
An arrow crab strikes a Shakespearean pose.
Dig | Eat | Swim
A Spotted Eagle Ray finishes off his Garden Eel snack as he takes flight.
Sand | Search | Swim
A Spotted Eagle Ray cruising inches above the sandy bottom in search of its next meal. Thanks for letting me fly with you.
"Permit Pack"
A very rare sighting for me here in Cayman. This is by far the biggest school of Permit I have encountered. After this initial shot, they swirled around me 3 times at rapid speed and then disappeared into the blue.
"Dawn Dive"
A Hawksbill Turtle taking a dive in the early morning light.
"Squid In The Sky #1"
Two squid at the surface with the sky and clouds above them.
I spent 1 1/2 hrs with them until they warmed up to me enough so I could photograph beneath them with the sky and clouds above.
Final RoundThrough to 2017 awards final round judging
"Sunrise Water With Stingray"
A stingray swims below waves at sunrise. The pinks and oranges of sunrise lit-water sheet off my dome port while a stingray swims beneath the waves.
Fish Geek
Stingray Crash
A Spotted Eagle Ray over a sandy bottom.
"Turtle Wave"
By getting out in front of a turtle you give it the choice to either swim around you or simply just keep swimming. I find calm breathing and nice subtle movements encourage great encounters.
"High Low'
The always graceful movements of Southern Stingrays are awesome to watch, experience, and photograph.
"Loggerhead Youngster"
This is by far the smallest Loggerhead Turtle I have encountered while diving. That being said he still probably had a fin span of around 4 1/2 ft. meaning he wasn't actually that small.
The Wreck & the Jacks
Face Off
"Colorful Corner"
This is an out cropping on the dive site, Orange Canyon. When we find ourselves here with a slight current there is a clear boost in the amount of fish taking the opportunity to feed in the near water moving past.
