Me being arty
I photographed this porthole on the sunken Ruby E (80 ft) - just for fun I threw another one of my images into the mix to see how it would turn out. Perhaps a similar view was once seen out the same window long ago?. My first fantasy attempt.....
'RED-LINED' Sea cucumber. Kimbe Island. Walindi Plantation; WNB, PNG. Housed Nikon F; Niko Mar III housing; 55mm auto-micro Nikkor lens + a little imagination. Enjoy!
Had some leftover sparklers from the July 4th celebrations. I could help but play around with them + a long shutter. Not marine related, but thought it would entertain =)

This looks like it could be a man eating cod, but really just a bit of fun in photoshop.
'Gray Angel' Portrait. Housed Nikon F; Niko Mor III housing; 55mm auto-micro Nikkor Lens. Enjoy!
Composite image (really !). The 2 images were taken in Sharm el Sheikh in the evening. D200 in Sea & Sea housing and 2 YS90 Auto strobes.
Free Diver and Manta after playing with photoshop.
"Sponge Flare" When i first took this shot it I didn't think the Lion Fish blended in that well at a later viewing the red of the fish and pink sponge seemed to meld into one, so I decided to add some colour.
'SPINECHEEK ANEMONE FISH' Housed Nikon F; Niko Mar III housing; 55 auto-micro Nikkor Len + imagination. Enjoy!
modelling with satins on the beach and near the sea- use of slow shutter speeds to give movement.
Breeding Red Eyed Kormoran, Patagonia - Estancia Madrugada...
Beduwin and his Waterpipe

We prefer natural shots and don't want to encourage image manipulation but this is such a strong image from Mathew
Red light district.
Taken under a cliff in the maldives. 28 metres. Sea & Sea MMII
A dolphin from Belize chasing fish with some photoshop work.
Colour Explosion, Elephant Ear Sponge, early sunrise dive outside Tawali Resort, 10 metres deep.
1 out of 72 pictures was almost Ok, all other pictures overexposed due to the white shell of the Nautilus that reflected the light too much.
'ANEMONE VISION' Micronesia. Housed Nikon F; Niko Mar III housing; 55mm auto-micro Nikkor lens + imagination. Enjoy!
" PILLAR OF REEF LIFE " This photo was taken off Roatan with a DC500 and Digtal Strobe. Pillar Coral always creates a dramatic photo.
shark attack
This photo of my wife and buddy off the wall at Mary's Place in Roatan. The photo was taken with my Sealife DC500, a single digital strobe and wide angle lense. The photo was taken 2 weeks ago.
