Nice details. Cool fin.
Backlit shot of an eel. Got a lot of light through the mouth. Kinda reminds me of a corporate executive promotional photo. If only he had his hand up to his chin in the "Thinker" pose.
Panorama of the Kittiwake stitched together in Photoshop. Underwater pano's are just a tad harder than topside!
Super macro of gorgonian polyps with a nikon 105 and SubSee 5X.
Light and dark.
The Kittiwake, Grand Cayman.
My daughter, Jenny, on the back rail of the Kittiwake, Grand Cayman.
Red Clingfish on gorgonian.
Orangesided Goby. Nikon 105 with Subsee 5X.
Very cool behavior shot. This basket star has wrapped itself, protectively, inside a gorgonian during daylight hours.
While struggling in the surge to photograph green striped gobies beneath the shore line sea urchins, I came across this tiny little crab. It looks like he got splashed by paint or, maybe, he grew up in the late 60's or early 70's.
Sunset panorama on our last day of diving.
Eyes Wide Shut
You see this all the time with human photos. First time for me with my fish buddies. Secretary blenny in a full-on blink. Inset shows next shot with eyes open. Then again... I guess maybe I see the point of closing those eyes! ...
A Sea Hare on an old, fallen sea fan. Nikon 105 with SubSee 5X, full frame.
Bristleworm. Never encountered one before this dive, then saw two. This one was far better at posing.
Spotted cleaner shrimp.
The view on 7 mile beach, apres dive, Grand Cayman.
"After the Storm"
The view of sunset during our dinner after a day of diving. Hand-held panorama with my daughter's pocket camera. This one had them lined up at the rails in the restaurant taking photos.
A common enough subject, but the background caught my eye.
Lobster eye, up close and personal.
Cling-fish on a gorgonian. 4 mm or less in length. Nikon 105 with Subsee 5X. 1/250; f22. Thanks to Katie, with Indigo Divers, for teaching me how to find this great little subject while I learn to use my 5x.
It's pretty difficult to orient yourself to blend in to a gorgonian.
Bristleworm. Nikon 105 mm with Subsee 5X.
Hydroid with Nikon 105 and Subsee 5X. Nearly bit through my reg while trying to get this shot while hovering on the wall.
Spotted cleaner shrimp in an anemone. Nikon 105 mm with Subsee 5X.
Juvenile decorator crab. 1/125; f32; Nikon 105 and Subsee 5X. The adults of this species are covered with so much growth, they are hard to even recognize. Who knew such a beautiful, colorful creature was under that stuff?
Not a bad end to a great day of diving in the Cayman Islands.
