"Layers" - A sharknose goby draws the eye into the corner of this underwater abstract of a brightly-colored sponge and hard corals. I sought to make a strong graphic image, the angles and black negative space as important as the layers and colors.

Amongst my favourite photographic subjects in Saint Lucia... by Jade Hoksbergen
Amongst my favourite photographic subjects in Saint Lucia is the Sailfin Blenny (Emblemaria pandionis). Only about an inch and a half long, this guy has got a lot of attitude to make up for it's size. -
