Thanks for your kind words. I netted this image at about 40 to 50 feet deep with available light using an Olympus C-8080 in an Ikelite underwater housing. Curacao is in the Netherland Antilles, often called the ABCs for Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. It lies just 45 miles north of Venezuela, outside the hurricane belt. Curacao is an arid island with tropical heat and humidity that’s covered in sticker brush and cactus. Curacao has a rich, diverse culture. More info at: http://www.curacao-travelguide.com

Thanks to all of you for your kind words. I'm so glad you like the UW portrait of my wife. There are many more UW shots from Curacao and Galapagos Islands in my gallery, whaleshark.smugmug.com if you're interested. There may be a link in my summary too. Thanks again.
