The USS Kittiwake has a ghostly feeling in black and white.  I love this wreck in Grand Cayman and continue to dive it every time I am there.

Pipehorse Portrait - My first pipehorse!  This little guy is less than an inch long, and is very hard to spot with an untrained eye. The background is white from my strobes reflecting off the sand.

"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.

Elk Horn Coral is very vulnerable to storm surge and swell, but lucky for us they always find a way to keep reaching for the sun.

Mermaid statue at Sunset House, Grand Cayman
I used a remote strobe with a Triggerfish strobe trigger to backlight the statue, and waited for the fish to be in a good position to click the shutter.
