'Air Time' might seem an odd name for this image but it seemed appropriate as I come up for ,air so to speak, from my underwater images.

We are fortunate here in having the diversity of weather which helps in creating dramatic images. Sunsets are obvious of course but when ever there is heavy but patchy cloud and the sun low in the sky the light will be gorgeous and everything looks wonderful.

Another first for me. Finally after years of diving I have finally found Veronica.

I called her Veronica as it is an anagram of Verconia verconis, her real name.

She has no common name as is the case with most of our beautifully weird and wonderful sea critters. Unless they are commercially significant or in the popular mind then creatures like Veronica never get a simple name, forever to be known only by some tongue twisting phrase of Latin.

Another wonderful find under Port Hughes Jetty, South Australia.

This little guy has me beat. At first I thought it was a spotted grubfish but after seeing the beautiful coloured markings I am not sure anymore.

Captured (photographically speaking) under Port Hughes Jetty.

The trouble with photographing people is drawing attention to myself.

All eyes on me this time!

I love what I do in the corporate world, expressing my creativity with solutions to problems painted in ones and zeros and control structures and and arcane languages.

I love what I do in my visual world painting with light and tones which I have gathered as images from my local environment.

I am lucky and grateful to be immersed in both.

I called this image 'Reception' for no other reason than it is the main reception entry to Mount Lofty House where a few of us spent a very pleasant afternoon with local photographer Hilary Hann sharing insights into her images, her travels and her thoughts on the 'art' of photography.

I first noticed Hilary's work a couple of years ago and while not a big fan of wildlife photography, her images moved me with an other-worldliness feel. As if raised from the mundane to some mythical status it was easy to imagine I was looking at a landscape lost in time, remembered as something precious and perhaps even lost. In her work I felt feelings of awe, admiration, wonder and even loss and grief.

Hilary's work can be found at her website http://hilaryhann.com.au/ but nothing beats a real printed and framed image.

At the end of the afternoon I did what any self respecting photographer enthusiast would do... click

I spy with my little eye something that starts with 'e'.

It's really not that hard to guess it's looking right back at me.

Octohideout

Tucked away safe and sound in a previously owned razorfish shell is a cute little girl octopus.

I know she is female as just outside her protective hideout there are two very enthusiastic males battling it out to join her.

When all was done and the looser vanquished she did not however bow to the victor's octpusly prowess.

Instead she chose to stay in her cosy nook and make him wait.

If you have not seen the battle you can find it on Youtube, Octopus Love Triangle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhaCNTlhg_4

Filmed under Port Hughes Jetty, South Australia this amazing display of octopus mating behavior with one male defending his access to a female against another male's advances was an unexpected surprise.

I shared this extraordinary encounter with diving friends Alex Sutandio, Mike Rowlands and Robert Paton.

The moon is waxing again and soon will be full. The pattern repeats over and over but the sky is always different.

Trapped behind a protective screen or a caged treasure?

Constrained indoors does not mean no photo opportunities. There's always something interesting to create with objects, light and imagination.

This afternoon while photographing sunspots a favorite Pink Floyd song came to mind.

"While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun"
