It's no surprise Roy Watkins shoots his Nikon D300 with a fisheye lens -- he's at fish eye-level, under the rippling waters of Fossil Creek.
His interest in photography started at a young age, but he didn't get his camera wet until he combined his interested in photos with his love of scuba diving. He participated in a few underwater photography workshops and describes his education as a lot of "trial and error." His photographs, which you can check out on his blog, are from all over the world (and in pools across Phoenix).
Watkins says Fossil Creek's his favorite spot to shoot in Arizona because there are a ton of fish and the water's clear. He's also trying to raise awareness of Fossil Creek, which is one of only two national wild and scenic rivers in Arizona.
