Hi folks,

Just back from a lovely holiday in the South Ari atoll- Maldives. Have to say, it was wonderful topside and underside in many ways.

Mind you...as the only loan DSLR photographer on the island resort I found the diving demanding, difficult, and frustrating with my rig- partly because I have to row in with my fellow non camera tourist divers, and compete with current and excess gas consumption!!!At times, I found things so frustrating,........I found myself seriously contemplating just giving up, selling all my stuff, and taking up golf.

Anyways, here's some of my efforts.
Hope u like maybe one of them.
(Incidentally, the Harelquin filefish and clown fish cluster are 'breath held-snorkel' shots).

Tops stuff!
The colour in the harlequin leatherjacket shot is fantastic...
Golf is boring!

Great work with the "snorkel shots". I am never able to get anything usable that way. Both shots are very good
