We were finishing our dive; as we turned to swim to our exit, we noticed several large lionfish emerging from the coral looking for dinner. I was able to wait long enough for the lionfish to smile at me and wave my buddy into place before surfacing.

Nikon d700,17mm,ISO 200, f14, 1/160sec. We were at 30ft, when I first noticed movement below me. Slowly, I turned around, inching along the sand hoping for a clear shot. This ray set off a storm, leaving me cleaning the sand out of my gear.

We swam with this big guy for almost an hour. He brushed up against me several times. It is believed he was hit by the ferry boat. You can see the scars on his back and a tear in the dorsal fin...Photo was taken with no strobe, Olympus 4040

"Magic"
I shot this photo while freediving in Isla Mujeres. Whale Sharks are such gentle and majestic giants. I was very honored, as well as humbled to meet a few eye to eye on this recent trip!

Bonito eggs happily don't show up as much as some plankton- you can see them streaked because of the panning of the camera- even at 160th second shutter. I applied a soft vignette in white and desaturated.

Spotted Drum in Cozumel. One of my favorite fish to see; I consider them good luck! Canon 5D3 w/ 8-15mm fisheye fish was basically on my dome!
