It's always fun playing peek-a-boo with orange Garibaldi's during California dives... Depth: 20' Equip: 5D MkII w/ 15mm f/2.8 / Ikelite housing & DS-51 strobe. Photo was cropped from a fisheye photo...
Diver Laura Poore with a giant black sea bass. We estimated its size at about 300 pounds and it reminded me of an underwater Saint Bernard...only bigger... Canon 350D/20mm f/2.8 w/ Ikelite DS-125 strobe.
Angry Nemo - Canon 350D/20mm/Ike DS-125 X 2/HID Light Cannon 100. Taken in Fiji last week.
Painted greenling having a siesta on a starfish in La Bufadora, MX. Canon 350D/60mm/Ikelite DS-125/HID Light Cannon 100.
Sea urchin macro - looks dangerous, no? Photo taken in La Bufadora, MX. Canon 350D/60mm/Ikelite DS-125/HID Light Cannon 100.

A starfish holding on for his life (to kelp) during some significant current in La Bufadora, Mexico. Canon 350D w/ 60mm lens, Ikelite housing w/ Ike DS-125 strobe and HID Light Cannon 100. I laughed underwater - he looks a bit human, doesn't he?
Eyeball Urchin - Anyone know the real name for this thing? Taken in an underwater junkyard where all the boats going out drop their garbage. Tragic... Canon 350D w/ Ikelite DS-125 strobe and 20mm lens.

School of fish in La Jolla, California. Taken with a Canon Digital Rebel XT w/ two strobes and use of available ambient light.
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.....
"Starfish Sex" - photo taken with a Canon Rebel XT w/ 20mm f/2.8 & Ikelite DS-125 strobe in TTL mode. Taken in La Bufadora, Mexico.
