Recommended Posts

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Bali. This is almost all macro – shot with my Canon 1DmkII, Seacam housing, and Sigma 150mm lens with Canon 500D diopter:

Awesome. Great finds with the Mimic, yellow pygmies and hairy GPF. And boxer crab and harlequin shrimp are always rare. I also really like the crinoid reef scene - very indonesian. Hope Sarah got some good pictures too. And most importantly the two of you had/are having a wonderful honeymoon.

p.s. I hope that all the critters are all still there in 8 days!

Thanks for taking the time from your honeymoon to give us a taste. I like the harlequin and the w/a diver best. Also, the crinoid shrimp caught my eye from your gallery. I hope you and your bride are having a wonderful trip.

That pygmy is very nice. I have yet to see that coloUration. And, the Harlequin is always a unique and nice find.

 

Safe returns.

 

I really need to get diving...

 

30 days till I head to British Columbia :)

Great stuff, James. I love the pygmy face and ghost pipefish! Looks like you're really getting used to that 150 + 500D! :)

Nice pipefish shots. :) Didn't see any of the hairy ones in Lembeh, but there were plenty of others. Sounds like you are having a blast.

Great shots James and nice to meet you in Tulamben. I have new appreciation for your work, now that I have tried to get the Pigmy shot :) Man, those suckers are hard to photograph. I sat on the bottom of Nudi Falls for 15 minutes and still didn't get one half as good as yours. The orange colors are gorgeous as well. Hope the rest of your trip is great.

Congratulations on your marriage. Great shots. Did you get the Harlequin at Seraya or Tulamben? Can't wait to see your ProShow presentation for HUPS. You will do one won't you?

Thanks everyone! I just walked in the door from a 21 hrs in the air trip home. Well I did take a shower before checking Wetpixel...:-)

 

Corby, thanks - it was good to meet you too. I wasn't as lucky as you - my pygmy was at exactly 100' - so add "narked" to the list of challenges to overcome to get the shot.

 

I'd love to do a presentation for HUPS if I'm invited. The harlequins were at the house "reef" at Seraya - there were 5 of them there!

 

Cheers

James
