Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, February 24, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

There is a wide variety of coral hermit crabs in the Solomons. You will likely see many of them show up in my favorites of the day for a while :). I was hoping to catch this one with the crab and the christmas tree worm both as points of interest. The depth of field was so shallow, that I think it was an impossible quest, but the crab was cute anyway…

Solomons 2006 and Leafy Sea Dragon Galleries    [ Diving,Photography,Travel,Website updates ]

The galleries and slideshows are up for my recent trip to the Solomon Islands and Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, where the leafy sea dragons live. I was even able to once again create a slideshow that works on the Mac. It’s Flash based, and a larger download than the PC slideshow, but I’m happy to be able to support that platform again!

Here’s the link to the main gallery page, which has links to the slideshows as well:




Better late than never!    [ General,Photography ]

Did I do a calendar this year?? Actually yes, though it was a bit delayed. I created a quick one before my trip to the Solomons in December, just so I could get a couple printed for family before I left, since I knew it would be well into January before I was back. But I wanted to have photos from the Solomons included in my final calendar, so I did not post it on my site at that time. I’ve now integrated some photos from the Solomons trip, so it is done and available. A little late for those who like to have their calendars in January, but available nonetheless!

Solomons ‘06 Favorite of the Day, February 3, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

I am busily working on my Solomons and Adelaide galleries, and hope to be able to launch them very shortly.  In the meantime, here is the first of what will be my series on favorites of the day from that trip.

This is a juvenile spinecheek anemonefish, in a fluorescent bubble tip anemone.  The anemone looks neon red to the eye in ambient light, but the strobe light saps out the fluorescence in the photo, leaving the golden brown color.  Sometime I will have to try taking an ambient light photo that does it justice.
