The Aquila in Norway. But the best bit about it was the two squid guarding their eggs!

2013 was a bit of a bust for me in terms of travelling, a pregnant dive buddy can put a damper on that. =)
Luckily living in Bermuda I still get to go diving every weekend, any how..
Wide angle (something other than a shipwreck)

There are some great shots, as always.
My favorite is from the Galapagos. I had never been diving with hammerhead sharks before, and it was really thrilling. Here is my favorite shot.
and in the spirit of cheating, here is a parrotfish shot from Bloody Bay Wall from Little Cayman

I've recently started working on some cave photography. While this one isn't from inside the cave, I did have to swim through cave to get there.
Cave diving can be a serious business, but it is the silly season, so here's a fun one I shot on Christmas Day that I like to call "Arse On Fire".
Thanks everyone for sharing so many beautiful images. Happy shooting in 2014!

Wow! Great pictures. I'm humbled. My favorites: Two from Cozumel this summer. The Eel just because I like the light and the way the eel undulates. The shot is a little soft around the eye, so not the greatest. The second was a reef scene just because I liked the colors.
Last one because it's the first picture that I've ever entered in a contest and won.

My favourite shot was taken yesterday, the 31st! And in the spirit of cheating, its not an underwater photo but rather a shot of the ocean from the air instead. This is in the Misool area of Raja Ampat, near the Pearl Farm and Cave for those of you who have been to the area.

I have a favorite horizontal image and a favorite vertical image
This communicative manatee made the cover of the classy Visit Citrus Visitors Guide: http://visitcitrus.com/visitorsguide
And my fav horizontal image was this male finding some erogenous ticklish zones on this female manatee:
If you would like to know more about when I took these photos, etc. they are part of my new post "Memorable Manatee Moments 2013"
or it is also here on my main site: http://www.oceangrant.com/#!/blog
I found it interesting that elbuzo said it was the best March 2013 he has seen for whale conditions, because it was the same with the manatees here. Usually March is very hit or miss, but we must have had very conducive weather patterns to make waters clear and animals abundant at Silver Banks and Crystal River.
Best, Carol Grant

I look forward to this thread every year, and am always humbled by the beautiful photos posted here. I'd like to put up two, one macro, taken in Anilao, PI, the first time I had ever heard of a hairy shrimp, much less had one pointed out to me… and since my new home is now California, a shot from Santa Barbara of two sealions… poor vis and nothing special, I just liked the composition!
