Went to the mailbox today and found the latest edition of Alert Diver. Opened the cover up on my way back into the house and started jumping up and down. I was looking down at one of my pictures. It is on the first page of the magazine with the Aggressor ad. This one is called My First Manta. I took this June of 2010 in Palau at German Channel. This is also the one alot of folks on here gave me feedback about when I was entering the 2010 Annual Aggressor Photo competition. So..thanks again for the help last year on this.

Just wanted to share with you guys. Knew that I could jump up and down on here and you would get it. My son even recognized the picture and I got a "That's cool mom." Which says alot - since sometimes I think my family gets tired of all the photography stuff I go on about.

Happy and all smiles - DiverPam

Thanks Jack. Here is a shot from the page. Once again, my family thinks I am nuts. Sitting there on the couch watching me try and take a shot of a magazine page.

Thanks guys. Wish I could say that the mooring line was totally planned. Just happened to be in the right place at the right time when the manta came through. This was at the end of the dive and we had not seen any manta at the feeding station.

I love that shot!! The mooring line really makes it unique, and the picture-of-the-picture doesn't do it justice - the print is gorgeous. Congrats :)

That's a beautiful shot. The printed version doesn't do it justice.
