This cuttlefish egg was moving through the sea just off a house reef in Mabul. I took so many shots trying to keep up with it and capture a sharpish image. It was taken with a Canon S95 and one INON strobe.

Schooling barracudas at Sipidan. After many attempts, I finally found them circling. Taken with a Canon S95 with an INON UFL-165 AD fisheye lens.

Maria proofed it again : A great shot does not need uw photo gear as big as a submarine !
The Liberty Wreck is truly an underwater photographer's paradise ... so many fans, corals, sponges, schooling fish ... This was was taken with a Canon S95, FIX housing and INON UFL-165 AD Fisheye Lens with one INON S-2000 strobe.

I was diving at Sipidan and turned around and this turtle was heading straight for me. I hadn't realised but the remora had come away from the turtle and was on this amazing 45 degree angle. I still can't believe it happened!
First dive at the famous Barracuda Point off Sipidan Island and found myself immersed in the famous school of jacks which hang out there .... This was taken with natural light and later converted to black and white.
Taken with a Canon Powershot S95 and an INON 105-AD Wide Angle Lens using the camera's underwater mode. I quite literally bumped into these guys all huddled up in 3 ms of water, simply chilling ... captions anyone?

Amazing encounter with a mimic octopus. Taken with Canon S95 using just the camera's underwater mode.
This is a shot of Sinkers, a buoy sunk by the Israelis that just wasn't quite long enough to hit the surface and sits in 12 ms of water fully of fluffy coral and lots of marine life.
Night Dive in Egypt with feeding lionfish and swarms of schooling baitfish trying to escape being dinner .... Taken with Sealife DC-1200 Elite Set-Up with wide angle lens
Canon S95 Powershot, FIX Housing, INON UFL-165 AD Fisheye Lens and INON Z-240 strobe. Special thanks to my friend Sarah from African Divers, Nuweiba, for swimming overhead for me! smile
This shot was taken in just 2 metres of water in Nuweiba. There was a huge baitball circling the jetty there being herded by a single lionfish. This was taken using my Canon S95 with a fisheye lens using the underwater mode.
