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

Mermaid statue at Sunset House, Grand Cayman
I used a remote strobe with a Triggerfish strobe trigger to backlight the statue, and waited for the fish to be in a good position to click the shutter.

"Prairie Land"
Seagrass takes on the look of a prairie landscape in this slow shutter image. I utilized surge in the shallows, allowing it to push me through the seagrass while I framed rippling blue water as the landscape's sky and clouds.
