Cayman Island Brittle Sea Star

The annual dive trip for the Dog House Divers was to the Cayman Islands in 2006. I was shooting with the Canon 100mm marco lens on the D20 for the first time and
discovered how beautiful these small Sea Star can be in a close up shot.

A good friend and great photographer named Chris Crumley said to always keep a camera with you. I was headed to a meeting and saw a lot of color coming from a field full of Zinnias (did not know what type of flower they were at the time). I spent the next two mornings in this field practicing with the 100 mm and 180 mm macro lenses.

Middleburg Horse Show, Virginia

My daughter Nikki rode in the Middleburg Classic Horse Show. I have never taken pictures of horses jumping hunter style jumps. She asked me to try! This is a practice jump prior to the in ring events. I did have fun!

Clark Anemone fish - Truk Lagoon

I had some luck at shooting a rare type of Clark Anemone fish in Truk Lagoon, Micronesia last spring. My mentor Chris will not let me publish the best shot. He has a “special plan” for it in the future! Here is one of the not so great shots.

Body by Sean O'Malley, effort by Aimee

A great trainer named Sean O’Malley (Cardio Coach™) was training a young lady named Aimee.
He was very proud of her effort and asked me to take a few pictures.
I told Sean I do underwater pictures but would try! Aimee made great progress with Sean!

Palau Orchid

I have been “practicing” on flowers with 50mm & 100mm macro lenses.
This orchid is a hybrid from Palau Micronesia. I took this picture last spring
at the end of a great Palau Dive trip. The flower is much better
prettier then this picture.

Pink Anemome fish, Truk Lagoon

Truk Lagoon is a great place for Anemone fish. This Pink Anemone fish in a light green
bulb Anemone with a purple underside caught my attention. This picture
was taken near a WWII Japanese combat tank on a sunken 400’ cargo ship.
