That's a "Where's Wally?" kind of photo .
No matter how much I peer I still can't see him.

Re: Underwater Photography

Does this help? For bow hunting, I have a leaf suit that's as effective for camo, I once had a small deer miss stepping on me by less than a meter.

At anchor in Elizabeth Harbor, George Town.
I didn't approach them, just hung out around the anchor chain and let them come to me if they water to, and they did :-)
Always feel so special when dolphins come to see me.

Re: Underwater Photography

Cuddle fish (I think)was a bit nervous when the dolphins arrived.

Oh, you are so lucky swimming with them . I have only seen dolphins from the bow while we are sailing, but they thrill me each and every time.

Re: Underwater Photography

Here's a few shots from a recent trip to Isthmus Cove, Two Harbors Catalina. These shots probably don't stack up against a lot of other places but for me Catalina has some of the nicest water in Southern California. I enjoyed my time ther tremendously!

There should be a shovelnose guitar fish, a couple of smaller yellow tails chasing lunch, a Calico Seabass, and of course the California state fish, the Garibaldi.

The Garibaldi's colour is amazing!
Interesting to see Californian underwater scenery.

But bugger me, because of a thunder storm that came through the area a couple of days ago, the water here is not the normal clear blue, more a murky green

It has been bucketing solidly here for two days with scary lightning.
It was weird diving. It is often noticeably cooler going deeper, but yesterday it was just the opposite. Surface sea temp has cooled abruptly. Long dives may be over for the year .

Re: Underwater Photography

Wow, such cool pics! This is the best thread, thanks to the OP for starting it.
This morning I climbed down my swim ladder to have swim and was immediately approached by this barracuda. He came right up to the swim ladder by the time I was knee deep. He has got a big wound on his head so I'm assuming he is not safe to hang out with. Tried to swim this afternoon and he was even more assertive coming withing a foot or two of my feet as I climbed down the ladder. We've decided to move anchor, we need to fill our water tanks anyways and hopefully he will find another place to get his shade.
