The Curious Sea Lion / Shot on film on my Nikonos V, this is the first analog image I've taken that I am truly in love with. No strobes or external light, just the sun.

Shot in about 20ft of water under the oil rigs off San Pedro.

We kayaked through the woods in North Florda to find this amazing sight. Loading up our kids and a load of gear to make an adventure memory of a lifetime. It was all worth it for such incredible shots!

This stone crab looks like its trying to decide if to give up the rocks for this "lost Pot" for a new home. Often Lobster pots are lost to bad weather but ironically become homes to many animals after.

"My BEST side!!" This gorgeous female sand tiger shark came within a few feet of me then instantly veered off to her right; I think she was making sure I captured her "best" side!

"Out of the pack" - I really had this image or something very similar to it in my mind during this particular dive with the sand tiger sharks, when I turned my head to see it in actuality!! Lucky me!!
