As always I have enjoyed a great trip back to Barbados so I thought I would share a photo or two. I dived many times at one of my favourite sites at the Carlisle Bay Marine Park wrecks. (p 96 in my dive guide book 🙂 I especially like the 100’s of snapper and grunts that inhabit the Cornwallis which lies in shallow water. These fish just love using her niches for cover, they venture out to feed and dart back in when a predator nears in one fluid movement., so beautiful and graceful. I spent hours trying to capture this movement using natural light but I ended up needing some flash use. This is one of the compositions I shot.
I have been passionate about marine life for over 30 years and enjoy expressing my vision of it through my photography and videography. Reef systems are ecologically the most fragile of all on the planet and it is only recently that we have come to fully understand their complexities. I am involved with marine conservation In Barbados and regularly make post about conservation issues across the world on the scuba channels facebook page; follow me there and keep informed. I have studied the many habits and behaviours of marine animals for many years which has taught me a deep appreciation for them but also how to photograph them in a sympathetic way. I have dived in over 42 different countries around the world and there is still so much I want to see, but Barbados has a special place and I know I still haven't seen all her jewels! Come and join me there sometime soon. :)
