Inspired by nearby competition, this male humpback put some serious power into this series of forward lunges. In 7 years of whale watching, I had never seen a lunge like this from this angle. Taken with a canon 350d and 70-300 lens.

Black Durgeon in Cozumel
Canon 5D3 w/ 8-15mm fisheye these fish are pretty hard to capture in Cozumel; the swift currents combined with their tendency to dive in a hole at any motion makes it quite a challenge!

"Magic"
I shot this photo while freediving in Isla Mujeres. Whale Sharks are such gentle and majestic giants. I was very honored, as well as humbled to meet a few eye to eye on this recent trip!

Bonito eggs happily don't show up as much as some plankton- you can see them streaked because of the panning of the camera- even at 160th second shutter. I applied a soft vignette in white and desaturated.

Spotted Drum in Cozumel. One of my favorite fish to see; I consider them good luck! Canon 5D3 w/ 8-15mm fisheye fish was basically on my dome!
