On to our second day of diving.
Yesterday was great. First-time in the water with my new camera.
Got some in focus shots. So far so good.Going to the other Island this morning.
Dive 5 – Coconut PointLittle bit of current. Another muck dive on a sandy slope.
Lots and of shrimps and lots of frogfish.
Shaun the sheep nudis.Feel like I am getting to grips with the camera.
Dive 6 – Secret BayIt would appear that I used the battery up on the previous dive. Short battery life isn’t something that I am used to.
Tried out my new +6 glasses on this dive. Worked really well. could see a lot of detail. Didn’t magnify as much as above water, but still very good.
We saw a couple of clean white seahorses.
Richard got viciously attacked by a fire urchin just for putting his knee on it. Unfair? perhaps not.Lots of shrimps and nudis.
Lovely dive! Shame about the battery!
BLT and club Sandwich for lunch with a side order of Coleslaw.
Dive 7 – House Reef
Stacked my diopters for this dive. added the +5 to the +10. Getting results closer to my old 105mm lense with the +10. it makes taking the photos harder but I think that it will be worth while.
Lots of critters on this dive to take photos of. Slugs, shrimps, lovely tiny bright red shrimp with googly eyes in a hole.
A dip in the pool with hot chocolate and a cup of tea before the night dive.
Here is a picture of the sunset…
Dive 8 – Secret Bay Night Dive
Oh dear +15 diopters are not good in the dark. Took a nice close up picture of a tiny octopus but that was about it.
Richard spent 10-15 mins with two squid. Lovely pictures. Brilliant to see. They weren’t budging, even Richard couldn’t scare then off.
Followed by tea, getting pictures of the camera, and sleep.
Here is a picture of our room door. Frogfish room.
