"Submariner" - Yellow spnges frame an imposing barracuda. I was going for a strong graphic image, so dialed up the shutter speed for contrast and to increase the silhouette of the barracuda and ledge it was under.

'Nosy'- I've never been around an animal underwater who's as interactive as the Steller sea lions in British Columbia. They truly are the puppies of the sea!

'Little Munchie' - Steller sea lions are the puppies of the sea. They're super cute, and they'll nibble on anything, including a diver!

A good friend of mine recently asked if I ever get tired of diving. With so much to see and photograph under the surface, I don't think that's ever going to be possible. Seeing turtles underwater is just one experience which always illicit pure joy.
