The anatomy of a breaking wave. This image shows the vortices of energy released as a wave breaks. The vortices last a tiny fraction of a second before the whole wave collapses into a foam ball.

I recently designed and built my own 18" diameter "super dome" specifically for over/under photography so I could get the entire image sharp from water split line to sea bed and horizon. This was my first test shoot a few days ago at sunrise.

Red Waratah Anemones. What I really love about over/under photographs is that it gives the underwater element a sense of place. For the viewer it marries the underwater environment with our own familiar world. It links the unknown with the known.
