We were underwater at about 45ft. at a cleaning station waiting for what seemed forever. Then after 40 minutes out of the blue comes this huge Manta flying gracefully overhead. This was the first Manta we had ever seen and Wow! what a beauty.

This little guy was hiding next to a brick on the sandy bottom. I love the colors and darkened the background to make him pop out of the photo. I especially like that you can see his lure and "fishing line" along his forehead. Dumaguete,Philippines

BluEyed Beauty
This tiny frogfish was walking along the bottom - and was a perfect model. I adjusted the saturation to create a B&W image with just the blue popping to accent the eyes.
