Early Morning in Kakaban Jellyfish lake gave this beautiful light bursting through the Mangrove. Nikon D100
Took a while to get the timing right on this one - blow the ring then quickly compose and shoot without shooting up to the surface myself !

A fantasy shot that wasn't Photoshopped
I used a slow shutter speed here to try and show the speed a Lionfish can move at
Hypsedoris Bullocki Portrait . This subject is my favourite nudi and was shot at 'Old House Reef' Mabul. It was on a flat sandy plain enabling me to get low and open up the aperture.

Nice Under/Over surface reflection shot of a Manta Roger
This seahorse and its partner lived in Paradise 1 ( Mabul, Borneo ) for a long time nice and shallow. Many a deco stop was spent trying for something different with the last few shots of a roll .

Roger explains one secret of u/w photographs like this - many rolls of film! Well done!
Striped fang blenny , taken in Sangalaki , Indonesian Borneo . I found this cute little fella on a cleaning station while having a break from shooting the Mantas which visit this island in huge numbers to feed. Loved the flower garden all around him.
