Love the fact that there is a middle section between the over and the under which shows the reef from above.

I carefully approached this Saltwater Crocodile in a shallow mangrove and seagrass area. I was diving in Jardines de la Reina, Cuba on Avalon live aboard boat in November. I used an Olympus XZ-2 without a flash.

I recently designed and built my own 18" diameter "super dome" specifically for over/under photography so I could get the entire image sharp from water split line to sea bed and horizon. This was my first test shoot a few days ago at sunrise.

Makes you want a swim? The clarity at Jervis Bay Australia can be magnificent in the correct conditions. Low tide sand ripples.

Red Waratah Anemones. What I really love about over/under photographs is that it gives the underwater element a sense of place. For the viewer it marries the underwater environment with our own familiar world. It links the unknown with the known.
