Blue Planet - Vol I




This photo-video is a compilation of underwater photographs taken throughout the Caribbean and include the Bahama chain of Islands.   I've posted this photo montage in the past and thought it was time to re-post it for those that have not yet seen it or wish to see it once again on this blog.

I no longer take underwater photographs and I've since sold all my underwater photography gear. 

I hope you enjoy the beauty of our oceans.  It is vital to protect the water and its inhabitants from pollution and overfishing.  These resources are severely threatened and under extreme stress today.  Many countries abuse these resources on a daily basis within their borders and in international waters.

If you have any questions about underwater photography, I'll do my best to answer them.  If you happen to have questions regarding scuba diving, I can answer those too.

Enjoyed the video compilation very much! I'd love to learn to scuba dive, but it seems rather complicated. I think I'll stick to snorkeling. :)

What a wonderful series, Daniel. I enjoyed it very much. Too bad that you don't take underwater photographs anymore. It must have been a great experience. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I hope we will meet again on our blogs. Greetings, Joke

Awesome captures of the underwater world. I know from a friend that the underwater gear is pretty heavy -is that the reason why you stopped?
Hope you also have a video of the shipwreck expedition!
