"Permit Pack"
A very rare sighting for me here in Cayman. This is by far the biggest school of Permit I have encountered. After this initial shot, they swirled around me 3 times at rapid speed and then disappeared into the blue.

"Squid In The Sky #1"
Two squid at the surface with the sky and clouds above them.
I spent 1 1/2 hrs with them until they warmed up to me enough so I could photograph beneath them with the sky and clouds above.

"Sunrise Water With Stingray"
A stingray swims below waves at sunrise. The pinks and oranges of sunrise lit-water sheet off my dome port while a stingray swims beneath the waves.

"Turtle Wave"
By getting out in front of a turtle you give it the choice to either swim around you or simply just keep swimming. I find calm breathing and nice subtle movements encourage great encounters.

"Loggerhead Youngster"
This is by far the smallest Loggerhead Turtle I have encountered while diving. That being said he still probably had a fin span of around 4 1/2 ft. meaning he wasn't actually that small.

"Colorful Corner"
This is an out cropping on the dive site, Orange Canyon. When we find ourselves here with a slight current there is a clear boost in the amount of fish taking the opportunity to feed in the near water moving past.

"School N Scatter"
I love finding schools of jacks in shallow water. Combining the texture on the surface, and using all the ambient light always bring together some pleasing images.

"Making the Rounds"

"Framed"
A flamingo tongue cowrie framed by the branches of a gorgonian. I pushed myself to create a unique photograph: lined up the cowrie thru the branches, positioned my strobes for backlight & used high shutter speed to black the background.

"Treasured Conditions"
Looking up from 120 ft. at Ghost Mountain and it was as crystal clear as I ever seen the water here. The diver is at about 15ft enjoying some of the best conditions I have ever experienced during February.

I've been developing a lighting technique, and I thought the mermaid statue at Sunset House would be a perfect subject to employ it. I'm pleased with the result 😀 No Photoshop.
