I love this annual tradition, even though as always it is very humbling. I have 2 favorites this year, one for a subject I fell in love with, the beautiful thresher shark --- and the other because it marked the first attempts at using a snoot, a technique that is making me rethink all the macro subjects I have taken over the years.


Have a great 2015 everyone!

This is a shot of the Arabia in Tobermory, Ontario. I've been trying to get this shot for many years, but poor visibility, currents, uncooperative buddies and general lack of skill on my part prevented it.  Taken last spring, in 110', 28°F water...
This image was featured in DIVER magazine in the November/DEMA issue. :-)

Thanks for the pics everyone


Though far from my normal NC haunts, this is my favorite.


At San Benedicto Island in the Revillagigedos Archipelago. At approximately 6:30 in the morning, first panga on site at "The Boiler", with only me, the dive master and another diver on board - the remainder of our team decided to sleep in.  I watched as this group of 6 dolphins came together from their separate activities, gathered in the distance, and seemingly make a conscious decision to come see just what the heck I was. They approached, swimming tantalizingly slow, straight towards me. Heart pounding, I kept praying, "Please keep coming! Closer! Stay together! Closer! Keep coming!" I literally had to "bow up" to get out of their way, as they passed as it seemed they were going to swim right through my chest. I likely could have wrapped my arms around several of them. Made the trip.

(Just re-read my post.. water was 38* F, not 28*!)  28*F fresh water is tough to swim in!)

This quilfin blenny was my favorite.  It does not compete with the quality of other shots here but it was my first photo of this species of blenny.

2014 was the upgrade from compact to SLR so it's tough to choose just one. This image is not my most popular as far as likes and so on but somehow stands out for me as one of the 1st images produced with the new kit. Has a little art to it. Most nudi pictures are up in the face of the poor slug, I have that photo too but this one has a little more than the tight shot for me.
