2nd Place Macro

Matthew Sullivan

"The Lady in Red"


Matthew Sullivan won a 7 night stay for two at Walindi Plantation Resort in a premium bungalow!


The Story: I've been fortunate to see a lot of Striated Frogfish from various places around the world but I'd never seen a red flavored one. I found this massive and spectacular female resting against a dock piling in the dark. Red is the fastest color to fade underwater so until lit by strobe light we had no idea what she really looked like. My jaw hit the ground when I looked at my LCD and saw her true color. She is my favorite frogfish I've seen.

Equipment Used: Nikon D700, Nikon 60mm macro lens, Nauticam Housing, Dual Inon Z330 Strobes, Retra LSD Snoot
