    Had a great weekend of diving at Ginnie and Peacock with Elisha and Bob. Brought the camera along for most of the dives.

    Wow. All I can say is, "Wow!"

    That second one should be in a magazine somewhere. That's awesome.

    I saw a scary cave creature sneaking up behind Don...it had an aluminum 80, a snorkel, and was standing on the bottom.

    Seriously I don't know why I had that look on my face. It was great diving with Don and being photographed, I keep looking at all the pics he took, they are so beautiful!

    Were you the guy with the Ike Housing coming out of the Peanut line around 1:30 on Sunday?

    Hmmm, I was in Orange Grove at 1:30 on Sunday. We were out of the Peanut line before noon.

    We went in the Peanut at 11:16 so that must have been you we passed. I am a long way from bringing my camera anywhere near a cave. But you shoots are stellar.

    Thanks again.

    Sweet! Really nice shots.

    Trying to decide on type of housing and strobes to purchase. What does your setup consist of? What do you find to be your most versatile lens length?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the comment. As for the gear setup here it is:

    Nikon D200 with Sigma 10-20mm lens (used at the 10mm end)
    Ikelite housing with 6" dome port.
    Ikelite DS-125 Strobe with TTL synch cord

    I'm hoping to get a few remote subs before my trip to Mexico in March. I find that the 10mm is the only lens I use. I have a flat port and 60mm macro, but it really is best for macros, and there is very little that I want to macro shoot in a cave. If I were doing lots of saltwater diving, I'd probably use it, but with caves, the wider, the better.

    Given your talent, I can't WAIT to see what you produce out of Mexico . . . !

    Ben mentioned today that there "may" be one spot open. March 11-18. You should give Bert or Connie a call.
