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

"Babylon"
This massive deep sea pinnacle is without a doubt one of the most prestigious dive sites in Cayman. It is situated on the far North East side of the island making it a long way from anywhere. It is always a treat to descend into the depths

"Dancing Turtle"
The Hawksbill literally swam up and stopped right on top of me. It didn't touch me and I didn't touch it, but the encounter will last in my memories and with this photograph.

While swimming out for a shore dive at sunset, I asked my friend to pose for me. I balanced one strobe on top of my head to give her face fill light, and placed the other strobe under the water to illuminate her tank and octo.
