Winner, Design and Artistic Merit category, 2012 National Outdoor Book Awards

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. There''s no other way to describe it: David Hall has created a masterpiece. . . . A complete and moving immersion in the breathtaking underwater world of the Pacific Northwest. -National Outdoor Book Awards

Breathtaking photographs and text by award-winning photographer David Hall capture the magnificent marine life of North America''s West Coast.

The Pacific Coast of North America features the most diverse and visually spectacular marine life of any temperate or cold-water ecosystem on the planet. From tiny, candy-striped shrimp to the giant Pacific octopus, from alabaster nudibranchs, luminous moon jellyfish, orchid sea stars, and wolf-eels to Steller sea lions, white-sided dolphins, and so much more, David Hall''s stunning underwater photographs-themselves works of art-reveal both the symbiotic and the predatory relationships in this web of life. Through state-of-the-art camera equipment and lighting, he has captured our underwater world in a way that will surprise even scuba divers already familiar with it and amaze the rest of us.

An introduction by Sarika Cullis-Suzuki, who has lived on the West Coast of North America almost her entire life and has studied its marine life as well as the fisheries of the high seas, describes her personal experiences with this amazing part of the world and discusses the conservation issues facing this rich yet vulnerable ecosystem. Christopher Newbert, author of the bestselling photography book Within a Rainbowed Sea, provides the foreword.

Beneath Cold Seas will appeal to a wide audience, including divers and beachcombers; fishers; marine life enthusiasts and scientists; tourists, including cruise ship and ferry passengers; and anyone who appreciates beautiful photography. Although there are many excellent underwater photography books on tropical locations, this is the first to feature the marine life of the Pacific Northwest and one of the few that focuses on any cold-water location.

Editorial Reviews

"Beneath Cold Seas: The Underwater Wilderness of the Pacific Northwest is a coffee-table book of spectacular underwater photography by David Hall, a writer and photographer who is also an accomplished diver. The jellyfish, tubeworms, nudibranch and anemones are otherworldly in their beauty and a reminder that the Northwest has some great dive spots." -- Oregon Live   "Photographer David Hall...found stunning images to record when he went diving off North America's West Coast. His amazing pictures show everything from candy-striped shrimp and wolf-eels to white-sided dolphins and the giant Pacific octopus." -- Waterloo Region Record   "Beneath Cold Seas: The Underwater Wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, by David Hall, transports readers to frigid waters off the west coast of Canada. The diversity of creatures in this ecosystem is astonishing; Hall’s colour photographs of them are astonishing, too. Steller sea lions loom out of the darkness. A Pacific prawn crawls over a barnacle-encrusted ledge. Crimson anemones and red soft coral brighten the kelp forest on the sea bottom." -- Montreal Gazette   "David Hall's award -­ winning photography captures the magnificent marine life of the West Coast: the most diverse of any cold -­ water ecosystem on the planet. Through state­of­the­art camera equipment and adventurous shots, he depicts our underwater world in a way that will amaze scuba divers and art-lovers alike." -- Vancouver Sun   "David
