David Hall’s sumptuous volume, Beneath Cold Seas, is a celebration of British Columbia diving and a perfect fit for this, DIVER’s first Big Picture page, a new feature to kick-off our contemporary new look front cover to back. The B.C. coast is DIVER’s backyard so we’re spoiled, never jaded, by the coldwater largesse that Hall has captured with such fidelity and skill. Published in Canada by Greystone Books, Vancouver, and in the U.S. by the University of Washington Press, Seattle, this coffee table book is an exuberant celebration of northwest coast marine life said to be the most diverse and spectacular of any coldwater eco system on the planet. Noted lensman Christopher Newbert pens the foreword while Sarika Cullis-Suzuki introduces the reader to Hall’s personal text and generous collection of images that reveal familiar and seldom-observed animal behaviours and relationships. Here, a Puget Sound King Crab, resplendent in its bright armour, appears as if in the protective custody of these Red Sea Urchins, near Staples Island, Queen Charlotte Strait. An author and award-winning photographer published in National Geographic, Time, Smithsonian and more, Hall’s new book is a keeper. Enjoy more of his images in DIVER’s new iPad edition available soon.
Beneath Cold Seas by David Hall is now available priced $45 For more information visit www.beneathcoldseas.com
