PhotoFriday – ‘First Light’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’First Light’

Unlike traditional landscape photography, luckily for us there is never a bad time to get in the water, dawn, dusk, middle of the day, after dark. Theres always something to photograph. However the middle of the day at the Cayman sandbar is full of other tourists. If you want the place to yourselves, and to see the natural schooling behaviour of the rays, you really need to get there at dawn. These are pretty old photos now, 2011 and 2010. One day it would be nice to go back 🙂

If you want to see my underwater photos from various places then check out the collection of galleries in my Reef Beasties Gallery. Or my best from 2012 here.

PhotoFriday – ‘Texture’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Texture’

The underwater realm is full of textures. In a place where you should look but not touch its frustration how many lovely looking textures there are. I like to use the lighting coming in from one side to bring out the textures where I can. Unusally for me I’ve chosen two black and white photos for this weeks theme. In the photo above I tried to bring out the texture of the sand as the gentle waves brushed over the dunes at the Grand Cayman Sandbar.
