I have crummy equipment, but whatev. I think these turned out ok.
oh god!!! that eel is pretty scary!
awesome shots, Would love to do that one day, looks peaceful there.
What is #3? that thing looks like it would eat you. Love #4 the diver in the back ground is a great I like the depth it adds to the shot.
# 3 is a moray eel. I havent gotten eaten by one yet...
thanks for the compliments!
Man, I miss diving in the ocean!
The creature in #3 is a Moray eel.
3 is hot... i like the weird angle
here are two more eel pics I got from that dive. the first one is the same eel, and the second one is another moray that we saw on that dive.
number 3 is spectacular. great great capture.
still, sometimes you just can't help missing the good old times when you'd have used an analog camera with a good slide film. those colours just can't be beaten but still, that's a great job you've done there.
thses make me wish i wasn't so useless in the water!
You're lucky, much more interesting than the green fish we have to look at while diving the lakes in Minnesota!
Wow, these are amazing! If I wasn't terrified of animals such as the Moray Eel, I'd love to photograph underwater one day. I blame Shark Week for my fear of the ocean.
Anyhow, amazing pics. Awesome angles
thanks for all the comments guys!
I think the best thing about #3 is the little shrimps that are on the right side of the eel. I didn't even see them until I got back and started sorting through the pictures on my laptop. They must just clean up the leftovers when the eel grabs a meal!
I am very not scared of eels... The more I dive, the more I realize that everything down there is more scared of me than I am of it... except I'm still really scared of bull sharks... mostly due to shark week.
I hear ya, shark week makes me regain my fear every time.
Especially since bull sharks have been sighted as far up the river as Illinois with possible sightings in Minnesota.
