    Kind of been tough with lousy diving weather, but a few photos for anyone who is bored.

    Stay far, far away Iota, please! Just replaced the air conditioner whose control boards didn't like the salt water and rain from Gamma, Delta, and Zeta and whatever else has been through DSC02991.jpg DSC03012.jpg DSC03015.jpg DSC03017.jpg DSC03032.jpg DSC03055.jpg DSC03079.jpg DSC03085-2.jpg DSC03088.jpg DSC03098.jpg .

    These pics were primarily from yesterday (juvenile smooth trunkfish was from last week)

    DSC03099.jpg DSC03145.jpg DSC03149.jpg DSC03150.jpg DSC03152-2.jpg DSC03158.jpg DSC03160.jpg DSC03184-2.jpg Note that for shot of anemone, the sexy shrimp was not the subject of the photo. Anenome crab (at left) focus not perfect, but main reason it doesn't stand out is that it seems to have hair (or something similar) all over the legs. Couldn't figure out what was going on even after staring at photo for a while.

    Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

    I saw the same green eel a couple weeks ago. That guy is huge and I was scared to get close, he was every bit of 6 feet long. Note the crab on the right side of my pic for size comparison.

    I hear you about that eel. That overhang was harder to get strobes under than you would expect. I think it took me six tries to get the strobes to actually light the eel as opposed the overhang and even that 6th try wasn't very good--I had to fix the exposure in lightroom just to get an OK picture. I was definitely nervous about getting close to that eel, but my thinking/hope was the housing/arms/strobes would give me some protection--I certainly kept all that crap between the eel and me :)

    Great pictures. I miss Sinai diving trips. The Mediterranean Sea is a bit boring sometimes

    Realized I missed one I had intended to post for anyone that likes sharks. Not really the best picture (poor viz and my strobes were out of position because I went from shooting something 1 inch long to 3 feet long in 30 seconds)--but it's something. Could have been a really cool pic if I had a few more seconds to adjust DSC03142.jpg
