Two Awesome Limited Edition Prints Available on Canvas

The picture of the Blue and Gold fusilier Caesio teres, was taken September 28, 2009.  We were in the Solomon Islands, Wickham Island Group, Maroro Island.  The dive started at 2:00 PM and it was raining “Cats an Dogs”!  During the morning dives I was shooting macro and for the afternoon I really wanted to shoot wide-angle.  But due to the rain I compromised on 60 MM lens and in hind sight this was a good compromise.  During earlier dives the Yellowbacks kept their distance, but on this dive a rather large school, several thousand, engulfed me.  I was able to fire off a few shoots; and this is one I really enjoy. The picture is a Giclee print on canvas, size is 16″ by 24″, prints limited to 5 copies worldwide.  Please e-mail me at arthur.koch@theazulocean.com for pricing.

The picture of the Gorgonian fan, Subergorgia mollis and the Many-Spotted Sweetlips, Plectorhinchus chaetodonoides, was taken September 30, 2009.  We were in the Solomon Islands, Wickham Island Group, Maroro Island.  For most of the trip it was raining or very cloudy.  Today was a different story, the sun broke through and I was finally able to shoot wide-angle!  It’s very difficult to describe the enormity of these sea fans, some 10 feet across!  The largest and healthiest I’ve ever seen, truly breathtaking!  I believe this photo captures the natural beauty the reef has to offer.  The picture is a Giclee print on canvas, size is 24″ by 36″, prints limited to 5 copies worldwide.  Please e-mail at arthur.koch@theazulocean.com for pricing
