An Octopuses Garden

Underwater Photo of OctopusI have been out Diving with Dave to collect more underwater photography for the book. The images we are gathering are amazing! For several of them we are using the iGills enclosure for iPhone, which has produced some rather remarkable photos of underwater sea life.

Among my favorites are photos of an octopus that we came upon. These are beautiful creatures and seem to be studying you back when you encounter one. They can change color rapidly and are truly amazing to see up close and personal.

We found this one just outside of Shark’s Cove on the North Shore of Oahu.

I am working on the photographs for the book, and will start illustrations of the sea creatures in the story. We have a ways to go, but things are starting to get exciting as we collect images, plan the pages, and work on the layout. Stay tuned!
