"Standing at Attention"
This Spanish Shawl nudibranch appears to be "Standing at attention." Actually it was hanging upside down when it was photographed. Photographed using a Canon A2E SLR camera (Ikelite housing), 100 mm macro lens, and two Ikelite strobes (Ai/n and Substrobe MV). Channel Islands, CA .
"Mister Rogers"
This giant green moray eel is an off shore resident of Bonaire, NA. The locals have named him "Mister Rogers." He seems quite content to have tiny fish and a large banded shrimp crawl all over him performing their cleaning chores. This photograph was taken in 1990 when Mister Rogers was was a mere six or seven feet long. No telling how big he is today. Photographed using a Nikonos camera, 35mm lens, Novatek closeup attachment and one Helix Aquaflash 28 strobe.
"Kelp Fantasy"
This is indeed a "Kelp Fantasy." Only through the magic of Adobe PhotoShop can one view tropical sea turtles swimming under a canopy of giant kelp. This is a composite of six different photographs. The turtles were photographed on several shore dives in Bonaire, NA. The kelp background and orange garibaldi were photographed on two dives off the Channel Islands. A Nikonos camera with a 28mm lens was used to photograph the kelp. All other images were photographed with a Canon A2E SLR camera (Ikelite housing) and a single Ikelite Substrobe 300.
