Inspired by nearby competition, this male humpback put some serious power into this series of forward lunges. In 7 years of whale watching, I had never seen a lunge like this from this angle. Taken with a canon 350d and 70-300 lens.

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.

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.
