As the ocean is getting cooler people are disappearing from the water. That means it’s quieter underwater, fish are more relaxed and inquisitive. Last time I played with ambient light a bit … and will continue. It makes a lot of sense for wide angle images in shallow water. The pictures below show the typical […]

I spent 90 minutes in the bay on the flat rocky bottom that was partially covered with coarse sand waiting for cool critters to appear. Posledný ponor v zátoke Matheson bol veľmi príjemný, voda bola studená, ale čistá. […]
