GregAmptman's Moments in Time

Poway, CA


My photos enable me to share some of my undersea adventures with divers and non divers alike. In doing so, I hope to show the beauty and majesty as well as the mystery of our worlds oceans. Diving after seven years and logging over 1000+ dives I realized that our oceans are not an inexhaustable resource which we can not afford to squander. Our oceans is something we need to manage conservatably. Our lives and futures depend on this.
