have called this picture Beautybell. They move around and can be hard
to focus on. Especially since they are transparent. I managed to get
this shot at the house reef at Gulen dive center on the west coast of
Norway. It is taken with my D70, 50mm Sigma macro at f16 1/100.
picture is not as creative as it looks. They grow everywhere in Norway.
Its is just a matter of lighting, like it always is in photography.
Taken off Nesoddtangen, Oslo. 50mm macro, f14, 1/100, ISO 200.
the lighting just gets right and is hard to reproduce. This was one of
these times. This bushy-backed seaslug was about 2cm long moving slowly
about outside of Tjøme, Norway. Taken with a 50mm
lens, 1/100 at f11.
can be beautiful. This painted top shell was positioned nicely for
photography. Moving very slowly, they allow the photographer to compose
the picture as he wants. Being under water doesn't make it easy. This
one was photographed at Gulen, Norway with my 50mm 1/100 f25.
can be found most places in Norway. They are biggest on the west coast
and the northern part of Norway. This is taken in Saltstraumen, the
worlds strongest natural wirlpool outside Bodø in Norway.
colours have been saturated in Photoshop, but it's not far from the
real world. 50mm, f14, 1/80.
from Portør, Norway. Also taken with the 50mm lens. As with
all photographs taken under water you need to be close. They
sting, and trying to capture these will give you some sore skin
afterwords. With proper lighting they can make nice pictures. This was
taken at f20.

of a hermit crab just outside Stokmarknes in the
Northern part of Norway. The picture is taken during competition dives
autumn 2008. I really like this picture myself and use it as a
background image on my laptop. The jury was not to happy about it and
placed it on 6th place in the makro category. I used the 70mm Sigma
lens at f10 and 1/80. Probably my sharpest lens at the sharpest setting.
