2005 National Marine Sanctuary Calendars and Address Book
Each year, the non-profit National Marine Sanctuary Foundation puts out a series of products featuring photographs from our underwater national treasures. For 2005 they feature a Telephone/Address Book, a Monthly Pocket Planner, three types of Calendars, and a Desk Blotter. What makes these products special for us is that some of the featured photos belong to Wetpixel members from all around the world.
The photo shown at left - taken by Wetpixel Administrator James Wiseman - is featured as the cover of the 2005 Telephone/Address Book.
