just a cool ascent diver was an instruction in tech diving
wow what a sight in only 20ft of water
these guys kept their distance but kept coming back
do not know what to say about this one
turn strike pose now hold it!!!!
not just nay seahorse shot. the depth and natural light led me to beleive that i had a seahorse on a brown piece of coral boy was I surprised when the slides were developed
these little creatures are great if you catch the eye in the right angle they are blues during the evening and awesome greens during the night
came on this big fella 1 morning in Cozumel on a wall dive. he did not seem to mind me getting close but did warn me with a bump into my camera when I did get too close. look closely for the parasite on his lower jaw
I tried and tried to get close to these Queen Angels, but they just wouldn't let me. Finally I figured out how to.
eels incredible and they can get so BIG!!!!!!!!
peekaboo
colors were very surpising to no attempt to camouflage or flare into a warning. I really love this shot again 1 of my favorite spots Cozumel,MX night dive

Personally I prefer 'straight' shots but in the fantasy section this works
look closely and you can see the eggs being released. 2nd in a series. shot on a night in Coz. Mx. have almost a roll of negs shot on these. a chance in a life time. they were all over the reef
found these in Coz,Mx and when I found out how unique they were I searched for them more often. They are described as "mother Of Many" as they lay eggs every 45 minutes of their lives. thought to have wiped out by a virus
ran into this little guy on a night dive in Coz, Mx I held my breath as long as I could to make sure I did not scare him off before the pic
got this shot in Belize over at Ambergis Key.Enjoy
his suit,the tubes,the water,great color if I say so myself. still in Coz,Mx
Is water blue???
These guys are always easy to get close to this one was particulary nosey. again 1 of my fav places to dive Coz. MX
This big beautuful basket star fish i shot in palau on A night dive.
mother and baby!!!!!!
Cozumel, MX shallow dive someone just being nosey!!!!
ANd I thought the queen angels were beautiful. Until I found these in Palau
the beginning of 1-2000
boy do I feel lucky night. dive in Cozumel and look what I found. this is just the beginning. Orgy time . Look for the next shots used nearly a roll of neg film for this event.
almost missed this little fellow but then he moved
