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.

We jumped in to snorkel with these mantas while they fed on the surface. They flipped over and over and allowed us to approach very close.

The colour version of this wreck shot I entered last year.
This version has been desaturated, with the exception of the red channel which is retained and highlights the colours on the anchor brought up by the strobes.

These creatures of the sea are my favorite. In 20+ years of diving, this is the first time I was this close to the spotted eagle ray. The picture was taken on the Columbia Shallows, Cozumel, Mexico

This was taken in 2007 with a first generation Sealife Reef Master Mini. Since then I have not been this close to an Eagle Ray. This shot inspired me to start shooting underwater and upgrade to what I have now. Canon 5dmkII!!

Another manta shot. Hope I don't bore you. But I really like these animals, even though it is difficult to capture their beauty in a photo.
