Raja Ampat 2008 Favorite of the Day, June 14, 2009    [ Diving,Photography ]

And because I don’t want all my postings to be about photo contest wins, I’m going to post one of my favorite images from my November trip to Raja Ampat. Wire coral gobies can make interesting subjects because they come in all different colors and sizes and are on all different colors and sizes of wire coral. They are also quite a challenge to shoot sometimes, depending on conditions. This wire coral goby was on a very lush wire coral, and looked almost as though he was hiding in a bed of flowers.

Nature’s Best Ocean Views 2009 Photo Contest    [ Photography ]

I’m very happy to have been named a winner in this year’s Nature’s Best Ocean Views photo contest. My photo of a very small pygmy seahorse will be included in the summer issue of the Nature’s Best magazine.

This is the photo:

2007 Scubadiving Magazine Photo Contest    [ Photography ]

I think the July issue of the magazine is about to come out, which should include my 2nd place finish photo in the wide angle category of their photo contest for this year. Here is the photo:

They do have some web based slideshows up on their website under UW Imaging, but names are not mentioned, and it includes many other finalists and HMs, I think, based on the size of the shows. I had another photo show up in the slideshow for the Marine Life category, and another in the Macro category slideshow, and I don’t know if they are finalists, or what.

WordPress update 2.8    [ Website updates ]

I’ve now updated my wordpress engine to 2.8, along with some plug-in updates, and things are still working (so far!). If something is wonky, I’d really appreciate it if folks would let me know. Thanks!
