Wow, I had to look twice to make sure this was not an image of me. I shot the same fan in a different ocean from the same angle. I love all your shots, so clear and vibrant.

I'd really love to get into scuba diving just seems like a world away. Anyway, fantastic work. Glad you are able to get out and take photos like this to share.

Fantastic shot. You don't see many B+W underwater photos anymore since color is often a big part of scuba diving. This is done beautifully!
