Setting moon

Woke up one morning to a golden moon setting within a purple sky. Just to be sure the colors were right, I set a custom white balance using a nearby house painted in white. A reminder of the simplicity of life before the crisis.




Slave huts on Bonaire

Bonaire Slave Huts
Before it was a scuba destination, Bonaire's main industry was the production of sea salt. In the days of slavery, men and women were forced to work as saltrakers in the salt evaporation pans of Bonaire's south shore. Slaves were housed in these small huts, now maintained by the local parks department.

Tucked inside

A squat shrimp (Thor amboinensis) nestled amongst the tentacles of a giant anemone (Condylactis gigantea).

To give a sense of size, that shrimp is about 1cm long - the tentacles of the anemone are comparable in thickness to your pinky finger.

The challenge with this image is that nothing stays still underwater. And because of the long recharge time on the strobes, you can't just fire off a burst of shots (the "spray and pray" approach). Instead, timing and some luck is needed. With this image the tentacles parted nicely, the autofocus locked onto the shrimp, and the strobes were in a nice position to light the scene.

No worries

Instead of "sticking our heads in the sand", we like to "submerge our souls in salt water". Given the craziness and scariness around us now, we can all use a bit of escapism. Wishing everyone health and well-being.

The green turtle in this image just took some breadths at the surface and is returning to the bottom to feed on some seagrass.
