Look closely: A diver penetrates a lower deck of the William Barnum shipwreck. In 1894, the wooden cargo ship sustained damage from ice and bad weather and started taking on water. Efforts to tow it to shore failed and it sank on April 3, 1894.

"My Orange, Orange Home"

"A Fantastic Find!"
A dwarf frogfish on Grand Cayman. This little guy was smaller than a pinky nail, and camouflaged to the color of the sand. This is only the second frogfish I've ever seen in over 500 dives in Cayman.

No Photoshop. One of the MOST incredible days ever on Grand Cayman. I exposed so the white sand slightly overexposed the image. I pressed down onto the sand looking up so the pink of the conch reflected on the surface with the bright blue sky.
