Looking across Sagami Bay at Mount Fuji. Photo taken on 6 January 2008 after completing a dive at Hayama, Japan. It was a beautiful sunny day. Air temp was in upper 60's... water temp was mid 50's. Definitely nice to be diving in a dry suit!

"Up Close and Personal" Moray Eel photographed off Ita Beach, Izu Pennisula, Japan on 29 September 2007. At the time this was one of the largest Moray's I had ever seen (I've since seen bigger). Canon A630 set on Macro/Ikelite Housing/Ikelite DS125
