My first dive in the Philippines was amazing, sitting on the reef was this beautiful nudi, begging to be taken a pic of. Lots of current, back scatter and many divers added to the challenge.

Cenote light. A great add on to an Isle Mujeres Whaleshark trip are the Cenotes. Since no strobes are allowed with the Whalesharks I left them home and shot natural light in the Cenotes with a high ISO (1600) and a fast wide lens.

Snake Portrait/This Snake portrait was taken in the Coral Sea at a site called "Snake Pit." There were many snakes at this site, and they were curious about the divers and seemed mezmerized by their reflection in the dome port.
