Green Sea Turtles Underneath The Boat

We offer three finishes to customize your favorite wall-ready Kidston Photography piece:

GLOSS – By far our most popular. This finish provides amazing color depth and luminosity.  Rich vibrant colors glow on this unique surface.

SEMI-GLOSS – This finish bridges the gap perfectly between Gloss and Matte. It has the same qualities in color depth as the gloss and has a touch more luminosity than the matte. This finish is less reflective than gloss which is ideal for heavily lit areas where glare can be a concern.

MATTE – This can be a choice if reflection is a concern.  This surface provides a rich, smooth finish where colors come alive in a more subtle way than the gloss.



Green Sea Turtles



Apo Island, Dumaguete, Philippines

I really wanted to get in some specific dives with green sea turtles.  I was at Apo Island earlier in the week and I only saw one or two.  I felt I could do better so I wanted to plan a shallow dive, just for green sea turtles.  The boat was all set up two days later.  It was just a 30-minute boat ride and the seas were flat.  The boat had plenty of room with only a few passengers.  Once we anchored, inhabitants from the island would come by in tiny boats and try to sell me t-shirts or scarfs.  I didn’t mind.  They were good quality and everyone was very nice.


Once we got our gear set up, we jumped in and they handed me my camera.  We decided to circle the shallow part of the reef in a clockwise fashion.  I didn’t want to miss a turtle so I made sure my dive guide pointed all of them out to me.   As we came around closer to the boat as we finished the dive, there were turtles everywhere.   At one point I had 6 turtles swimming around me. The guide just laughed because they were just everywhere.  Huge green sea turtles in soft coral for miles.


I would lock on a turtle to get the best photo possible and then I would be startled by another huge turtle swimming right by my head. This turtle in this photo just glided past me.  After he made his inspection of my camera, we ascended to the boat to head back and gear up for the night.  The shallow dives paid off with moments and photos that met my expectations.
