Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

During daytime silversides hide in caverns, swim-throughs, grottos and wrecks. As dawn settles the predators follow them.

"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.

A baby nurse shark tucked inside a colorful overhang. This little cutie was only about a foot long! It was so inspiring to see this early stage of life on the reef.

Fluorescing secretary blenny!
I used a very shallow depth of field, enabling me to focus solely on the blenny and let the coral blur out of focus. To capture the fluorescence I used Nightsea filters.

"Psychedelic Golden Tail"
I had fluorescence filters on my strobes. The eel didn't fluoresce, so I took off the bluish-purple fluoro filters. As I was composing this shot, one of the filters swung in front of a strobe, giving this psychedelic light.

Fluorescence! A goby glows brightly on brain coral. I shot this using Nightsea filters: the fluorescence is excited by the blue light emitted through my strobes and then recorded through the Nightsea filter over my macro port.

A transitioning French Angelfish races across a coral reef. I photographed this scene with a slow-shutter speed while panning. This enabled me to show the speed while freezing the fish in action.

Gimme Shelter - As we drifted out to the end of a coral finger near Sand Chute in Grand Cayman, we were surprised to find this lobster taking a nap in the sponge. Fortunately I was shooting with an 8mm fisheye lens and could capture the moment.

Night Octopus! I came across this octopus on a night dive. It slid up against a wall of coral and spread itself wide. It changed colors and textures repeatedly while I took this photograph.
