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

"Pink Peppermint"
I set off to photograph a peppermint shrimp, and looked inside dozens of vase sponges until I finally found this one. I used a small aperture to keep just the eyes in focus and blur the background into a soft pink.

I took this picture with my gopro hero 4. Didn't realize it's awesomeness until looking through my pics later that night. What's amazing is that the beach this was taken at (Trunk Bay, St John, USVI) was very crowded, so I was lucky.

Diver and elephant ear sponge. I like this version with the legs apart. For me, the split legs add a sort of whimsy to the photo, like the diver is in flight. Plus, rules are made to be broken. wink
