Intricate coral stands, snow white sand and crazy clear water. Even if I didn't have a camera in my hands it'd still be a great trip.

El Aguila, Spanish for ‘The Eagle’, is a 230 ft long freighter and rests at a max depth of 110’. Located on the North side of Roatan a short trip from West End. The mast is beautifully encrusted in black coral, gorgonians, and sponges.

Sometimes I find myself looking for the extraordinary when I am taken back by the simplistic. This image captures the latter in a small grouping of a barrel sponge, crinoids and anemone which collectively endow a variety of texture, shape and color.

Red whip coral lending a strong contrast to the blue water column has always been a favorite.

Coral Castle — Tufi, Papua New Guinea. The shear size and spectacular intricacy of this coral stand as indeed a site to behold. It was a reminder why we all pursue diving with such passion.

Coral bommies dot most of the dive sites in Turks & Caicos. This one attracted my attention because of its shape and the beautifully colored purple rope sponges complimenting the typical azure blue of this part of the Caribbean.

Taken on Mabul Island, Malaysia. The bold white stripe is paradoxical to the behavior of this timed little fellow who rarely ventured out from the protection its host.

If you’re diving Bonaire and are looking for something to do for the surface day before you fly visit the Donkey Sanctuary. Buy some carrots and you are now their best friend, great cause that’ll give you a warm and fuzzy.
