Macro Magic
 
It's amazing what colourful creatures hide in the tiniest places under the sea.
 
Here's a selection of macro magical encounters all taken with a variety of point and shoot cameras, some with a macro lens, some are taken with just the camera and the housing.  They were taken either in natural light, using the camera's own built-in flash or lit with an external strobe.
      Underwater
        Seascapes
           
 
A selection of underwater scenes from sharks to humpback whales, turtles, dolphins and breathtaking colourful reef scenes.
 
All of these photos were taken using a variety of different point and shoot cameras with a wide angle lens, fisheye lens using natural light or one or two external strobes.
 
   Cooler Waters
           
The water may be cooler but the colours are just as, if not more spectacular.  These photos are taken here in Swanage, Dorset - Cornwall, Chepstow, Ireland and further afield in California and Alaska.
 
All of them were taken with a variety of point and shoot cameras and an Olympus Bridge Camera.

Rubbish
           
It's always been my passion to help keep our oceans clean.  Recently I've been doing some dives specifically to get rid of any rubbish that appears under Swanage Pier.
 
When I was diving recently with Emma Christison doing a SeaSearch survey, I photographed her collecting over 20 kgs of nets and lines in just two dives under the Pier and at the Fleur de Lys nearby (happily she did save 2 crabs who were caught up in it all and so great to see them swim off to keep enjoying their ocean home).
 
This has inspired me to dive as much as possible under the pier to help keep the rubbish out of our oceans. I was chuffed to reunite a pair of sunglasses with their owner recently and can't wait for my next dive to see what I encounter.  I hope that you will be inspired too to help keep our oceans clean.

Velvet Crab

I just love their red eyes. This one was a little shy and scuttled back into his hole after this photograph.
