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.

The anchor just in front of Calabas Reef in Bonaire. Great vis and calm water - the anchor found a good place to stay. Shot with a Canon 30D in an Ikelite housing and Sigma 15/2.8 fisheye.

I photographed what is traditionally a macro subject using wide-angle for a different look. A single Christmas tree worm is illuminated atop star coral. I used a high SS to make the water dark blue, increasing contrast between xmas worm &background

Schooling grunts race under the salt pier in Bonaire! I lay on my back looking up and framed the salt pier in silhouette. The grunts had been hanging around, and once I had my composition, I waited for them to enter the scene.
