Golden Rough Head

This Golden Rough Head Blenny may look rather fierce, but in reality he's harmless and smaller than the nail on your little finger!

French Angelfish Mate for Life

A pair of French Angelfish cruise the reef. Unlike most fish, French Angels appear to be monogamous and spend a lot of their time tag teaming to chase away unwelcome visitors

Brain Coral Planet

Using inward lighting, I was able to isolate this perfectly formed Brain Coral. There is great beauty to be found even in common underwater subjects and I am mesmerised by the textures and grooves of this hard coral.

Two Sharks
       
     
Two Sharks

The Grey Reef Shark is the big daddy of the reef. The biggest of the reef sharks, they are at the apex of the food chain and, appropriately, they swim around like a boss. I love their shape and was surprised to find they have a beautiful bronze colour to them once you splash a bit of light on their bodies!

Million Dollar Ray

The Cayman Islands were declared a shark sanctuary in 2015 in a move which recognises the multifaceted value of these animals. Stingray City is the most popular attraction in the Caribbean and each ray is estimated to be worth $1.75 million in terms of tourist revenue!

Saluting the Kittiwake

My dive buddy salutes at the bow of Grand Cayman's most famous wreck: the ex-USS Kittiwake. Decomissioned, auctioned and scuttled off the coast, this famous former submarine rescue vessel was once upon a time responsible for rescuing the black box from the tragic Challenger space ship explosion.

Tarpon Trio
       
     
Tarpon Trio

With an upturned mouth and slid, silvery bodies, Tarpon are a primary predator on the reef and cruise around like they own the place.
