Kona Mantas (aka Sting Ray City on Acid)

28 July 2010 - 06:53 AM

Heres a small collection of photos from a recent night dive with huge Pacific Manta Rays in Kona. To be honest I was a bit over my skis having never tried to photograph large animals at night. As much as possible I wanted to somehow create images that revealed the elegance of these animals and none of the surrounding circus atmosphere. By no means did I do a great job but I had some modest success. Id love to go back and try again.

Any advice on good Kona Coast operators?

I'm headed to the Kona Coast area on the big island in a few weeks and need to make some dive plans. Does anyone have any recommendations in terms of good photographer friendly operators?
