Kissing under the ocean. A couple of porcupine fish caught in the act! Taken in 60ft of water at 100ft distance with digital zoom. No wide angle. Turks & Caicos, at dive site called Eel Garden. Nice!

This big creature might have an eye on me! This photo of a Caribbean Reef Shark was taken off Nassau last Saturday. No dive trip to the Bahamas would be complete without seeing sharks.

~ A Closer Look ~
The rhinophores of either the Janolus capensis or Janolus longidentatus. I say either as its impossible to tell these two apart unless you seen laying their egg mass.

~ Frenzy ~
Probably the predators which lights up a bait ball with the most energy, both visually and audibly are these Cape Gannets. Their skills see them hunting down to at least the 12-15m range.Truly an awesome spectacle to witness.

Beauty might be in the eye of the beholder, but it sure as daylight is all around us. Often all that is required, is to slow down and take another look at something we take for grant.

As with just about anything, our judgement of it is defined by our perception of it. Once you have shed the perception the media would like you to have about shark, your eyes open & you can appreciate their beauty and expressions.

The ocean is filled with amazing creatures. One of the things that fascinates me the most is the shear magnitude this spans. From the largest animal on the planet down to super macro. (The tube part measures just over 1mm.)

~ For the Architect in me ~
One of the challenges I love about wildlife photography is the fact that you can't simply ask your models to pose like this or like. But with enough studying & perfect timing you can capture moments which seems so.

~ Burning Issue ~
A stark reminder of the constant thread our oceans are under, be it from pollution, over fishing or poaching. Most of these happens out of sight and for most that means out of mind. We as photographers can change that!

The common name for this nudibranch in Cape Town is Purple Lady. I wanted to created a scene with the "lady" walking down a street lit boulevard at night and used the bokeh and the colours of the reef for this.

I simply love dive sites with interesting topography. Its kind of like being in mountainous terrain, only you can "fly" where ever you would like to go with little effort.

Spotted Gulley Shark at cave entrance. Of the inshore sharks found in our waters, these are the most skittish and a real treat to find one on a dive.

From time to time these Crystal Jellyfish gets swept inshore from the deep pelagic waters by up-welling. Its a long and harsh journey and finding a beautiful in-tacked jelly at the end of it is a rare find.
