Barbados Turtle

I don’t do a lot of underwater photography because I don’t live anywhere near the ocean. I have a cheap Ziplock type bag that I intrust my rather expensive camera to. Needless to say, I am a bit nervous that the bag is going to spring a leak every time I use it. It is hard…

PCB Sunset

I called Panama City Beach my home for several summers. I worked at a camp where this was the view from our fourth floor balcony in an old run down hotel. These were some of the best days of my life and where I met some of the best people who I have been privileged to…

Jagged-tooth Shell

I found this jagged-tooth looking seashell on a small remote beach of the Philippine Sea while on a day trip snorkeling adventure from the main Island of Cebu. I’ve never seen anything quite like it and, seeing as how nothing was living in it, I brought it home and adorned a shelf with it. It helps me…

Leafy Sea Dragon

This is the Australian Leafy Sea Dragon and is closely related to the seahorse. They live in the waters off of the southern and eastern sides of Australia, but this little guy calls the Georgia Aquarium home. They are beautiful other-worldly looking creatures. I hope to see one in its natural environment one day.

Ocean Flower

I found these beautiful Yellow Allamanda flowers overlooking the clear blue Caribbean waters on the island of Martinique. The yellow really stands out against the blue ocean and sky.

Midnight Moon

This is the moon’s reflection streaking across the ocean surface as it reaches the sandy shore of Panama City Beach, Florida. This is another great example of a moment that is captured beyond what we are capable of seeing. A camera is able to “see” the world in a different way than our eyes. Is it real? Is anything we…

Angry Hermit

While wading through the shallow, crystal clear water’s of the Philippine Sea near Mactan Island, I came across a beautiful seashell just under the water’s surface. I like to collect things like shells and rocks when I am abroad so this looked like the perfect item to take home. I lifted the shell out of the water and this hermit…

Endless Ocean

This was taken in the Philippine Sea near Mactan Island . The crystal clear shallow water makes for gorgeous expansive views of the ocean, which in truth is really only a small bay.

Jamaican Sunset

This is why if you ever travel to Jamaica you should get out of the resorts (or don’t stay in them in the first place). My wife and I had this small stretch of ocean entirely to ourselves for sunset. This small pavilion and an awesome road side fresh fish grill are located about 30…
