Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award for Design and Artistic Merit: "This book is a work of art from every possible angle - from the exquisite photographs, to the book's design, to its flawless printing and production process. . . .

This is a complete and moving immersion in the breathtaking underwater world of the Pacific Northwest." - National Outdoor Book committee

"David Hall shoots with the inquiring and exacting eye of a scientist yet the soul and vision of an artist, combining the two to produce uniquely beautiful underwater images that educate as much as they inspire." -Christopher Newbert, author of Within a Rainbowed Sea

In Beneath Cold Seas, author and photographer David Hall takes us into the underwater world of the Pacific Coast from California to Alaska, home to the most diverse and spectacular marine life of any temperate or cold-water ecosystem on the planet. From the tiny, candy-stripe shrimp, giant Pacific octopus, ghost-like hooded nudibranchs, and migrating sockeye salmon to the world's largest sea lions, Hall's stunning photographs and lively text reveal many fascinating species interrelationships and rarely observed animal behaviors. An innovative approach to over/underwater photography places the marine life of the Pacific Northwest in familiar context with hauntingly beautiful images that will surprise even experienced divers and delight the rest of us. An introduction by Sarika Cullis-Suzuki focuses on the conservation issues facing this rich yet vulnerable ecosystem.

"To glimpse the spectacular ecosystem that lies beneath the chilly deep of the Pacific Northwest, spend some time with photographer David Hall's book, Beneath Cold Seas." -Camille Mann and Edecio Martinez, The Weather Channel

[I]t is difficult to imagine that there will ever be a better collection of photographs to come out of this area." -Peter Rowlands, Underwater Photography, January 2012

"This book offers a fascinating view of the cold-water ecosystem of the Pacific Northwest and artistically illuminates the intriguing underwater world.

"He depicts our underwater world in a way that will amaze scuba divers and art lovers alike." -Tracey Sherlock, Vancouver Sun, December 2011

Although the animals themselves are truly amazing, it is Hall's creative eye and masterful photographic technique that really sets this book apart." -Jemima Greaves, Outdoor Photography Magazine

"Hall's images-which, at times, appear to be photographs of life on another planet-reflect not just the amazing diversity of sea life in local waters, but also the spectacular carnival of colors hidden just below the surface." -Brangien Davis, Seattle Magazine, December 2011

"You will never look at the slate-gray waters of Puget Sound with the same eyes after perusing these photos." -Mary Ann Gwinn, Seattle Times, December 2011
