This image was shot last October on a trip to southern Raja Ampat. Early in the Raja diving season (Sept-April) is when the baitfish bloom and the mobiles swarm!
An avid northern California surfer for 20 years, Jeff Lemelin discovered the spectacular beauty of what lies beneath the waves when he learned to scuba dive in Thailand in 2005.
Since then he, and his wife Jen, have enjoyed traveling to remote regions of Indonesia and the South Pacific searching for waves and underwater seascapes.
Jeff and Jen live nestled in the hills on a garden oasis between Santa Rosa and Calistoga, California with their two couch-potato pugs, chickens, and beehives.
