Under the Sound Photography

There's plenty to see under the surface of Puget Sound, as photographer and Master Diver Rich Zade illustrates on his web site

The hundreds of photographs on Rich's site illustrate the diverse shapes and many hues of the underwater creatures. They include large fish, small fish, and good close-ups of some of the tiny members of the marine ecosystem. Stop by his web site, enjoy his photos, and say "Hello".



Not all of our underwater neighbors are colorful, however, though several of them have the ability to blend in with the sand, mud, and seashells. See if you can spot the fish in this picture.

An avid cold water diver, Rich says he didn't start diving until age 57 but is making up for it now! His photos have been published in books by Andy Lamb and Milton Love. He spends much of his time diving in and around Port Towsend, WA. His web site features photos from 2006 to the present. His contact information is available on his site in case you are interested in using any of his photos.
