For those interested, I have written a blog post with my 10 personal favourite photos from the past year, along with the stories behind the images as well as a bit of insight on the year in review over on my blog, it gives a bit of insight into working in the dive industry as well

http://mikeveitchblo...images-of-2012/

Here are a couple of them along with the story behind them:

I spent a lot of my time in 2012 shooting wide angle photography, in fact, as I peruse my photos I seem to have shot macro a total of 3 times in 2012, on the 11th, 12th, and 13th of January in Horseshoe Bay! As part of my wide angle series, I shot a lot of scenics and was always in search of interesting hard coral scenes. For some reason I just love a healthy hard coral garden, when others get bored of all the hard coral, I am just amazed with the foundations and designs and can spend all day taking natural light photos of healthy reef. Here is my favourite of 2012:

Coral Reflecting on the Surface, South Loloda Islands, Halmahera Province, Indonesia

One dive also stands out for an amazing cave filled with golden sweepers, no words necessary.
