  1. I always love this thread. Fantastic photos everyone. Here's my choice: I have some shots that I maybe prefer personally, but this one ended up on the cover of the Roatan divesite guide book so that makes me happy. Taken on the mast of the El Aguila wreck in Roatan. Cheers, dano
  2. I like this trend. Honduras made a similar declaration a week or two back also. I had a chance to shoot a captive nurse shark release with the Honduran president in conjunction with their announcement. Now it comes down to policing I guess. http://www.danopendygrasse.com/Details/det...ters-photos.php Dano
  3. 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. Dano http://www.danopendygrasse.com/Details/det...otos-roatan.php
  4. Leslie, You've just made my friends day. She was very excited to finally know. Thanks for being such a great resource. D.
  5. Rats, Try this? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=7742...mp;id=580136432 Thanks for the heads up Gina. d.
  6. 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? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=101...e=1&theater Thank you, dano
  7. Hi Gina, I've seen them a few times here in Roatan too. Around the shop they ID it as a Zebra Sole though I'm not entirely convinced. I saw a really small one yesterday, there's a shot it this blog post. http://www.danopendygrasse.com/Details/det...oatan-photo.php I'm curious too. dano
  8. I've been pretty lucky in my career in action sports but it seems the underwater world is more prone to unscrupulous consumers of photography. I hope that at some point I'll be selling underwater photos and that by then the trend turns towards people paying for what they use. Spreading stories like this around certainly can't hurt. d.
  9. 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: http://photobusinessforum.blogspot.com/201...r-possible.html and the original post (with lengthy comments) is here: http://blog.webcopyplus.com/2011/02/14/leg...0-for-10-photo/ 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. -dano
  10. 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! Cheers, Dano
  11. Hi Dave, We bought Hawai'i's Fishes and found it to be quite useful. http://www.hawaiisfishes.com/books/hawaiis...es/fishbook.htm It has common, latin, and Hawaiian names, indicates endemic species and decent descriptions of most of what we were looking for. Hope this helps. Dano.
