Nikon d700,17mm,ISO 200, f14, 1/160sec. We were at 30ft, when I first noticed movement below me. Slowly, I turned around, inching along the sand hoping for a clear shot. This ray set off a storm, leaving me cleaning the sand out of my gear.

We were in a photo class in the midst of a tropical depression and unable to dive the Bloody Bay Wall in Little Cayman - so we shot macro on the south side. Was lucky neough to find this solitary hydroid on the end of a coral!

"Squid In High Key"
I spent about 1 1/2 hrs with some playful squid on a shallow shore dive. I pointed my camera straight up under the squid against the sky & intentionally overexposed the sun to blow out the sky & leave just the squid as subject.
