Photographer's Note

Bir başka sualtı cenneti Sipadan Adası... etrafını kumda yürüyerek en fazla 20 dakikada dolaşacağınız büyüklükte bir mercan adası... haritada görülmüyor bile.. en yakın kıyıya 40 km uzaklıkta... adanın anakaraya bakan sualtı yamacı 1200 mt, okyanusa bakan sualtı yamacı ise 650 mt derinliğe kadar iniyor...
fotoğrafta görülen aslan balığı tropik sulardaki en zehirli balıklardan... sırt yüzgecini oluşturan oklar sayesinde avını zehirliyor ve sonra yiyor... çok güzel olmasına rağmen çok zehirli, tıpkı çok güzel bayanlar gibi !!.. (şaka, wallahi şaka)
Bu fotoğrfda Nikon D-100 için Sea &Sea DX D-100 housing, Nikkor 24-85 için NX zoom port, ışık kaynağı olarak Sea & Sea YS 90 Duo, YS 90 Auto ve snyc cord kullandım...

Sipadan Island is the one of the most popular underwater paradise in the world... It's such a small ısland that you can not even see it on the map ... the good part, you have the chance to walk around this island in 20 min...it is 40 km.away from the closest land...

The lion-fish belongs to the Scorpion fish family.
This brightly coloured fish is usually found in coral reefs, especially in shallow waters hovering in caves or near crevices. Lion-fish have venomous fin spines that can produce painful puncture wounds.
Fatalities, however, are rare.
The fish have elongated dorsal fin spines and enlarged pectoral fins, and each species has a particular pattern of zebra like stripes.
A person punctured by one of the sharp spines will immediately feel strong pain. Rapid swelling of the affected body area develops along with the possibility of making movement of limbs very difficult. Lion-fish stings can cause nausea, breathing difficulties, paralysis, convulsions and collapse. Even death may occur in exceptional circumstances. Most people survive in spite of the great pain. The venom in the spines remains active for days, so even discarded spines should be treated with caution. It may take several months for a full recovery and if the sting is left untreated, gangrene may develop.

For this shot the equipment was; Sea & Sea DX D-100 housing for Nikon D-100, NX zoom port for Nikkor 24-85, Sea & Sea YS 90 Duo and YS 90 Auto, Sea Arm VI long flash arms and snyc cord.
