Underwater photography is my great escape from normal daily life. It totally immerses me (both figuratively and literally) in nature.  I never think about my day job; I am always fully "in the moment."  My best underwater photography is in the <a href="http://www.underwaterreflections.com/gallery/1443425">Underwater Highlights gallery</a>.  Bears, birds, etc. are in the  <a href="http://www.underwaterreflections.com/Nature">Nature galleries</a>.

WHAT'S NEW-ish!

1. NEWEST TRIP GALLERIES (all in "Underwater" gallery): 4 trips to the Philippines and one Sea of Cortez sea lion trip, and before that, these 3:
Cayman Islands - April 2017, Belize 2014, TRUK LAGOON - Feb, 2012.

2. I was featured in a 3-page article in an Eastside Puget Sound community magazine, Points Living (when it opens, click on "X3" at the top).

3. BLOG: Although I haven't posted to it since recounting my horrible motorcycle accident ("My Year of Patience and Perspective"), you can read about that and some other things here: BLOG

4. A 5ft high "Cheshire Cat Grin" print of the shot at left - identical to the one in the Smithsonian (Museum of Natural History) has been on display off and on locally (Seattle area) different places, but not currently.

5. You might still be able to watch Seattle's King 5 (NBC) TV segment about my photography!

6. ALL PROFITS from my photography still go to the Int'l Children's Surgical Foundation. In conjunction with Appropriate Balance, the company I founded 38 years ago, my photography has been able to raise over $20,000 for ICSF thus far, enough to change the lives of over 100 children! That makes my photography "hobby" especially rewarding.
