It has been far too long since I last visited Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel CA. I had heard from other divers that the Cabazon males could be found guarding eggs this time of year but that this yearly event was nearly over. On Monday 2/24 condition were incredible with 50' visibility and very little surge. I lucked out and found this rather large Cabazon (Scorpaenichthys marmoratus) near the "Hole in the Wall" just outside Whalers Cove. This was shot at f10 @ 125th second, Manual mode housed DSLR, 100mm Macro Lens and two strobes 1/2 power and -4 power. Processing this image was very straight forward with minor adjustments to increase contrast, sharpen and very little backscatter removal, thanks to relatively clear water. I wish I had spent some time bracketing my depth of field to see a little more sharpness in the pectoral fins. Next time...
