Great shots.

I like the 1st one. I just can't wait to go diving and try macro shots

Nice pics! This almost makes me want to get out my dry suit from storage and get back into UK diving. Almost.

(Last time was at Capenwray in Jan 2009. Water an inspiring 2 degrees C and a gentle gale blowing directly from Siberia across the car park). I didn't think it was possible for a human to be so cold and still alive. Curiously though the Open Water students I was teaching seemed to enjoy it)

Rather than start another one on UK diving, can I add to this one Alex?

Nice ones Alex. The pair is cool, pity you didn't have more strobe on the right to light the second one more. But they tend to be quite jumpy when out of their holes - so I imagine they didn't pose for long when you closed in. And I really like the pose of the one with the eggs - looks like he is really caring for them!

Thanks guys,

I did managed to swing the other strobe around for a second shot but by that time the blenny in the tube had turned over! I quite like him upside down

What do you think?

Nice. I like both, but I think that the second one works better. Alex
