About

As you will see from my portfolio I will have a go at photographing most things but if anything I specialise in recording my view of the underwater world as seen by a snorkeller.
I think my favourite subject is people, but they never seem to find much favour on here.
I enjoy joining the occasional EPZ meet and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

These pictures are just totally incredible. When I see photos like these I realise just how much I have to learn. To think that somebody with your talent took time out to comment on one of my pictures is mind-boggling. Thank you.

Very clever...my favourite is the pleasure boat one. It's quite subtle...It's as if i walked into the sea...tripped on a rock, and this is what i glimpsed for half a second, before going under.

Hi Penny, thanks for the info you had left on my first picture. I did my best with a very basic camera but am looking to upgrade Smile I've taken your comments on board. I love your underwater shots, particularly as I try to spend as much time as possible in the ocean!!

Penny, thanks for the comments on my picture. I think you're right about framing the picture starting w/ the tree. I hadn't considered that. You're right, no tripod. I have one now though Smile I love your underwater photography. What do you use for a casing for the camera? This is something I would love to do.

Penny, Thanks for the welcome note.
I really like your take on underwater shots of the marine world.
The Powder Blue's are great. Seeing Schools of them like this must have been fantastic.
Well done and thanks again.

Thanks for your comment, yes i agree, slightly over-processed.
It's an HDR, not a big fan really but you have to experiment dont you.
All the best

Penny,

just had a quick flick thru your portfolio.

I had the opportunity to go to Vabbinfaru in the Maldives last November and your super images bring back some great memories. I had a go at some underwater stuff but could achieve nothing like your splendid quality.

Excellent

Hello Peny
Pretty impressive sots in th maldives and what a fantastic destination. I have been there a couple of times and have come back with some good shots. You must get youself scuba diving as if your snorkeling shots are anything to go by deeper will be quite magnificant

Its been a real pleasure to look through some of your many pics. I love the whole new world below the water that you open up and combine with what is above. Its so different from pictures below OR above
You have an amazing gift in the way you see and portray your ideas.
