Didn't get to go diving in 2010. The joys of a young family! The best I managed was 45 minutes snorkeling in Marsa Alam. Spent almost the whole time in a school of Mackerel.

No salt around here, but began playing around in rivers and streams.

Hi Sasdasaf,

Yes 5 in one shot. But this is fairly common at my local dive site of Julian Rocks, Byron Bay, Australia. We can garrantee to see Wobbegongs and earlier in the year we had large school of baitfish which brought all the wobbies in the area in one spot.

Here is a unedited video showing just how many Wobbies in one spot:

I find it so hard to be objective about my images and pick a Best but this image is something I've been working on achieving for some time.

In this instance it all came together the behaviour, the light, the equipment and the right settings. Very satisfying :)







Cheers,

Jim.

This year I've been blessed with diving. Been three times to Sipadan, not too bad (and won't speak about Reunion island, Visayas, Komodo, Flores and the rest)... I thought my best photo 2010 couldn't be taken elsewhere than Sipadan then.
It was raining turtles and snorkelers that day (it was raining ...water, too....duh).
When I saw the scene from below I thought it was quite funny and switched off my strobes : these are mating turtles and snorkelers playing peeping toms around.

I found this guy flying from one coral head to another on a night dive at Cayman Brac. I really like the way the octopus made his tentacles little wings.
