Yellow was the theme for the April Bluewater Photography contest and my yellow ribbon eel image taken in Alor Indonesia at Maumere Pier placed second.  For more images from that trip, visit the Scubarews website gallery for Alor, Indonesia.

"A Boy and his Dolphins"

I woke up this past Thursday to a nice surprise from Dive Photo Guide. They selected my image "A boy and his dolphins" for third place in their Marine Mammals Monthly contest. This photograph was taken on a trip in the Bahamas aboarJames Abernethy's Shear Water. We had many opportunities to free dive with the wild dolphins. The dolphins were were very curious and loved to play with us. The only limiting factor was how long you could hold your breath and how fast you could swim. This was by far my best dolphin experience and would love to return soon.

Check out the first and second images at What a great moment captured on Film by Phil Davison and those whales photographed by Brandi Mueller make me even more excited about my Sea of Cortez trip in August to dive with the local whales.

In April, I took a wonderful trip to Papua New Guinea (PNG) and spent 10 days on the MV Febrina diving and doing underwater photography.  It was my first time to PNG and also first time shooting super macro.  Underwater Photogreaphy Guide just published my latest article "Learning Super Macro Photography in Papua New Guinea." In this story I explain how my first attempt with super macro went, lessons learned and share some of the images of subjects less than an inch long. I hope you enjoy the story and look for another to be pubished soon about the PNG trip
