Your Favourite/Best Image of 2013

Recommended Posts

Mines from Orimas thila in Noonu atoll in the Maldives. Was hoping for some in your face shark action but the current wasn't running fast enough so ended up spending some time on 'plan B'

Great stuff on here. In some trepidation I'll add a couple of my own - a wide angle of bumphead parrotfish and a macro of a prickly leatherjacket. Never seen the latter before and I think he is pretty photogenic.

I anxiously await this thread every year...it is so full of treasures. So hard to choose...but here are my top two favorites. Both of these were taken during Digital Madness in Grand Cayman.

 

I love jawfish and catching this yawn was especially fun.

This was my first outing with silversides and also photographing freedivers.

Apologies for really breaking the rules here...elsewhere I have been doing a 12 Days of Christmas meets Advent Calendar posting, revealing a new door each day...so rather than make Wetpixelers sit through the 12 doors again, I'm showing the first and last calendars. Here goes:-

And now for all the doors opened:-

8. HMS Scylla. Cornwall, UK.

Just 36 dives this year. Would have been more, but a broken collarbone kept me out of the water for a bit...

my favorite wide angle and macro shot of 2013- both from Palau- the wide angle is self explanatory, the macro is clownfish eggs nearing time to hatch- merry, merry to you all and good shooting in 2014

2013 started out with two weeks in Palau followed by significant photographic surface intervals and then 3 weeks in the Phillipines. Lots of opportunities to shoot in unusual environments such as the Pantanal in Brazil and Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The shot on Jellyfish Lake is one of my favourites.

This first one was my favorites as I've been trying to capture this behavior all summer and finally got it. Sarcastic Fringehead showing off for his lady friend in La Jolla, California.

This second one while not my best picture it was a lot of fun and reminds me of the very playful sea lions in La Paz, Baja California, Mexico.

Both great, but the turtle is gorgeous, too!

I think the Goose's pain was worth it: it's nice to see his back not in the flesh, as it were...

 

... even if there's a suspicious similarity of Alex's image to one of mine!

A stout moray & cleaner shrimp carry on as if... This is Maui, the only county in Hawaii to rid itself of aquarium abductors. Same but with 105mm

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)

Not much diving for me this year due to injury.

This is one of my favourite images that I have shared this year.

Taken at Cedros last month.

 

Happy bubbles

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.
