Great Underwater Photography from International Competition

Last week the University of Miami announced the winners for its annual Underwater Photography Competition. The contest, which is international in scope and had over 700 entries landed some absolutely amazing images of fish of all types. As a photographer first and an angler second I find these images as gorgeous as they are technically challenging. I know what goes into them after taking a year and a half to shoot my first book, of which a majority was underwater. It isn't easy, at all. In fact, it's one of the harder things I've every done with a camera. So, looking at these incredible images of fish all below the surface makes me envious and want to learn that much more.

While most of the images in the contest don't deal with what most of us would consider sport-fish, they are mind blowing photographs of underwater creatures in their natural habitats and that is something all of us can appreciate, I think.

Those are awesome. I want the grouper photo blown up about 10,000% and put on the wall of my basement.
