I recently returned from an excellent trip to the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji. While the visibility was rather mediocre for most of our trip, the diving (and especially the diversity of life) was spectacular. Here are a few of my favorites -- for the full gallery visit:

Thanks for the kind words -- the 5th photo was taken with a Tokina 12-24mm set wide open for a 30 sec exposure at ISO3200 -- any longer would have resulted in star trails. The D7000 does reasonably well at long exposures and high noise, but in hindsight I probably should have stacked multiple exposures to bring out the milky way even more

Here's another composition of the same night sky, plus one during the day for good measure :lol:
