Wow, bull shark pictures are not very common. Was there any bait in the water to attract them? I like the dark mood of the shots...

Yes, there was bait to attract them. And sometime they came real close that once my dome port was hit by one of these bigboys.,,

Great shots. I take it these were taken at Beqa Lagoon. I dived there a few years ago with a Nik V, but didn't manage to get anything close to this quality.

Great shots, quite atmospheric with the sharks coming out of the dark, although number 2 gives me the willies, Bull sharks scare the hell out of me!
No diving for 3 weeks-- work work work.

Nice images!
I see you were able to avoid getting the annoying black/white striped damsels in your images. Those fishies are so annoying when one is trying to get the perfect shark image!

I just got back from Beqa Lagoon...did 8 sharks dives last week. One dive we had FORTY, yes 40, bull sharks show up on ONE dive!!! Another dive we were lucky enough to have a very large female tiger shark show up for about 10 minutes. Other sharks included the tawny nurse shark, sickle fin lemon shark, and the usual reef shark suspects.
