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

Fluorescing Goby - "Tie-Dye"
No color editing was done to this photo. The rainbow of colors is from shooting with my Nightsea fluorescence kit. The filters "excite" the fluorescence in the goby and coral.

A brightly colored starfish rests on seagrass just below the surface. I took this shot with my camera completely submerged, and utilized a Snell's window to include the sky and clouds.

"After The Dive"
We surfaced from a magical dive to this magical light.
Photographed with a small aperture so that the sun burst through the cloud with a star effect.
