We were finishing our dive; as we turned to swim to our exit, we noticed several large lionfish emerging from the coral looking for dinner. I was able to wait long enough for the lionfish to smile at me and wave my buddy into place before surfacing.

Dead crab found floating on the surface at the bay of pigs, Cuba. Quite the shock when you are surfacing and this pops in front of your face!

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 swam with this big guy for almost an hour. He brushed up against me several times. It is believed he was hit by the ferry boat. You can see the scars on his back and a tear in the dorsal fin...Photo was taken with no strobe, Olympus 4040

This young Atlantic spotted dolphin was so bold and curious as she ventured away from the pod to investigate me. It appears that she is swimming in the clouds, as the water swirls around her, sun beaming through.

28mm - Experimenting with a different lens for underwater photogaphs. I love how the edges blur, drawing the eye to both the center of the frame and the subject. This is one of my first forays with this lens, I like the potential!
