This shot was taken in just 2 metres of water in Nuweiba.  There was a huge baitball circling the jetty there being herded by a single lionfish.  This was taken using my Canon S95 with a fisheye lens using the underwater mode.

Swimming with a Giant Pacific Manta Ray is one of my favourite experiences.  These gentle giants are truly inspiring to be with.  It was taken in the Socorro Islands with a Fuji Finepix, Inon Fisheye Lens and an Inon D2000 Strobe at Roca Partida.
