About “Striated Feathers” | There are times that when you discover something, you don’t want to share it because other people knowing about it may ruin why you treasure it so much. I have long felt that was about scuba diving in St. Barth. Most people do not think of this island as a good spot for diving, but it really is wonderful. It’s one of the main reasons that I chose to spend two months there as I worked on this new series of underwater photographs. “Striated Feathers” was shot deep below the water’s surface and while that may not be evident, this photograph would not be possible without that life-giving water. By being patient and planning, I am able to showcase these amazing colors, present wonderful detail, and capture the gentle flow of each radioles of this Magnificent Feather Duster.
