Default Pretty Pictures from the Bahamas

We just got back from a trip to the West End, Walker's Cay, Double Breasted Cay etc. It was a seriously choppy 4-6 foot seas crossing, but it laid down after that day. Only managed to do 1 dive, but did a lot of snorkeling. There were 9 of us (mostly family) on a 48' ocean. Got a bunch of lobster, hogfish, conch, and one nice mutton snapper. I've never been able to eat my fill of lobster until this trip. We were in west end for the traditional Bahamian new years celebration "Junkanoo." Lots of fun, can't wait until next year.

We try to make it over once a year, weather and schedule dependent. Bimini, West End, or San Salvador so far.

I love Destin diving, have a lot of experience on the inshore stuff there. I mostly end up diving Pensacola just because that's where my buddies are (I am without boat :/ unfortunately).

Love that bug on the head picture.

What camera did you use for the underwater shots?

Thanks,

Jim

Awesome looking time! I dated a Cuban chick in college who held some spear fishing records!

Dive1; I have no spearfishing experience but am a diver and am looking for other divers to hang with if you are looking to drink a beer or fill a spot on a boat!

The camera is (in my opinion) one of the more underrated camera set ups. It's a cheap canon point and shoot and a canon brand underwater housing. Rated to 130 feet. I got the whole set up on ebay for about $150. It always looks better than more expensive made-for-diving set ups (up to a certain point, of course).

Canon SD780is
Case: WP-DC31

Another easy way to get good underwater pictures, is the editing. I like to use Google's Picasa. It's a super-basic editing program, but there's a trick for getting rid of the hazyness of low visibility. The program has a button called "i'm feeling lucky". Then save it, and you can do that a bunch of times and it really does wonders for clearing up underwater pictures. It makes the reef "pop" a lot more.
