About this time of year a tropical vacation seems in order, and Rodger Klein’s Images From the Sea: Underwater Images From Around the World may just be the next best thing to being in those warm turquoise waters. After 15 years and 3,000 dives, this professional underwater photographer and videographer is not what you’d call wet behind the ears. Rod seems to navigate the underwater world with the heightened attentiveness most of us reserve for rush-hour traffic jams – but if I had these views on my commute, I definitely wouldn’t be in such a hurry to get home. Nothing escapes Rod’s camera lens, from the unexpectedly gentle look in the eye of a mighty whale to the pygmy seahorse anchored by a tiny tail wrapped around algae. Definitely Book of the Week material.

Hard to imagine from these seemingly effortless shots that Rod does not, in fact, have gills, and that he lugs all of his digital equipment with him underwater. But seeing is believing, and if you’re planning a trip to Fiji in February (lucky you) you might take a class with the “megapixel master” to see how it’s done. Sounds like another Blurb book in the making …
