Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

During daytime silversides hide in caverns, swim-throughs, grottos and wrecks. As dawn settles the predators follow them.

On precious planet Earth, change is needed. Sometimes people are driven by fear or greed and that causes damage to the balance. One victim is the species sharks, the cruel act of finning decimated numbers by 70%, they deserve respect & protection.

The girl in the picture is my firstborn and she saw the light:-) more than 14 years ago under water...I guess this makes this image predestined!

First encounter with whale sharks was incredible. The aggregation at Isla Mujeres is worth a visit!

Pink Anemonefish
My first time diving in another sea than the Caribbean, I was enchanted by all kinds of anemonefish. Every time I spotted them, I simply had to take time for some shots! Mesmerizing!

Stream
This time I went to Eden Rock instead of my favorite dive site Devil's Grotto to watch more silverside action. The cave is wider so to merge ambient with strobe to light the whole group was an excellent exercise.

Silky frenzy
3 Silkies line up and approach me while a photographer fights the current against the background of the boat wash, to get back on board. Beautiful days at Epic Diving.

Hard to digest!
Visiting the Oceanic Whitetips in the big blue of Cat Island is a very humble experience. Loved every minute of it and 'Epic Diving' (Vincent & Debra Canabal) make it happen with a lot of respect for the animals!

At first glance, thumbnail size this image doesn't have anything to say. Just another bow wreck shot. But when you zoom it... it tells a story and draws you in. Well done Ellen
