Cordelia Banks, Roatan. Staghorn's best chance?

07 July 2011 - 11:57 AM

Hi there,

I recently had a chance to get a look at the Cordelia Banks off Roatan with Ian Drysdale from HealthyReefs.org and Nic from the Roatan Marine Park. It's a really interesting story that brings to light the life cycle of corals in the Caribbean. Only one tank in less than ideal conditions, but it's nice to see.

Feedback and critique is always appreciated.

Roatan worm?

27 June 2011 - 12:01 PM

Hi There,

A friend of mine found this worm (?) a year ago in 15 feet of water in Roatan. After moving across the sand it buried its head by the time she got her camera out. She's searched but can't figure it out. Can anyone here help?

infringement judgement

17 February 2011 - 02:36 PM

An interesting story making the rounds of the blogoshphere today regarding a copywriting company that settled a photo infringement case for $4000. Worth reading.

John Harrington runs it down here:

and the original post (with lengthy comments) is here:

I think that the more of these stories get out there, the more likely it is that people will buy photos instead of stealing them.

Enjoy.

Naked neck crab?

16 February 2011 - 12:55 PM

Hi friends.

Just looking through some old shots and came across this. Is it just a really unadorned neck crab or something else? I don't think I've ever seen one so naked before!

Holiday in Maui

11 January 2011 - 10:01 PM

Hello,

I spent a couple weeks in Maui over the holidays. It rained a fair amount making the shore diving visibility a little limited and as a result a didn't dive as much as I would have liked but managed to get some shots I was happy with.

Only my second trip with a housed DSLR and I was a little rusty. C and C is welcome.

The diving shots are the second half of the post so skip past the rest if it doesn't interest you.

Cheers.
