    Great shot!

    I have been trying to do this since last year. My trip has been cancelled twice due to the pandemic. Hopefully the third one, September 2022, will happen.

    This is easily my favourite though... my stepdaughter on her very first fun dive :)
    Actually it's one of my better green water pics... still working on technique.
    The earlier posts are easy when you have clear bright blue water and bright coloured coral and critters lol

    This is looking up my umbilical at the PTC (navy diving bell) from almost 950'/290M. It was shot on film with a Nikonos and I was amazed that anything came out at all. It was the deepest photo taken by a diver at that point. Too bad nobody could tell what the heck it was. :(

    There was another diver about 10'/3M from me and the strobe didn't even pick up his umbilical. The backscatter-looking dots are my bubbles with the bell lights shining through them. There were three 1000w incandescent Birns & Sawyer 120V light heads.

    This is one I like a lot I saw a turtle head up to the surface for a breather so I just waited where I was and the turtle used me as a way point and headed right back at me then into a cavity where it would take a long rest.

    This video is worth watching to the end. At first my small lights are not close enough to get colour then you see the colour come.

    I set my tray on a rock then as I was leaving the Octopus was bitten twice by a fish. My insta dive buddy was behind me did not even see the octopus and looks back at me as he passed me. When he saw the video he asked when was that I said on the dive with you but you just ignored your dive buddy lol.
