Been taking a few days of quiet to catch up on life and energy. Finally getting through photos as well from my recent trip to Kona. While I was there I had the chance to do my first blackwater dive with @diveanddriveamerica, @markshark808 and @chuckbabbittphotography. For the most part I clutched the down line like a literal lifeline as I stared into a black abyss floating silently in 5000ft of water. Occasionally though, a tiny sparkle or light would float past and I would creep away from my umbilical like a hungry mouse. Maybe even try for a picture. This particular time, probably taking pity on my frisbee sized eyes, Sarah wafted this pyrosome towards me. It’s incredibly difficult trying to take a picture of a colony of tunicates hurtling through the dark space of the ocean at night with a 100mm macro lens. Really fun though! There are some really amazing things out there in the ocean and this was a totally new experience for me that I’d like to repeat again in the near future. Also titled : Intergalactic space shrimp on strawberry warship.

Last weekend was my second time participating in the Kona underwater shootout. I somehow managed to come away with third place in wide angle this year, something I was surprised to have even gotten. See above photo. Taken freediving. I’m not fishing for compliments or validation. I’m telling you with confidence I produced some profoundly mediocre images by my own personal standards this year. To be totally honest? Some of the most fun I had was when I left the camera and gear on the boat to just chill out. When the deadline rolled around I submitted photos only hoping to win a small door prize. Continued in comments ⤵️

This is not a rock. It’s a Commerson’s frogfish expertly hiding in the coral. Waiting for his next delivery meal. Lazy bugger. •

The ocean changes as the sun goes down, the reef and coral start to bloom, bringing out their evening attire. Fish start to fall asleep and a different sort of crowd comes out.
