Re: Diving during the lockdown

Looks like all public water access has been shut down for two weeks per https://parks.state.wa.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=603 I have an email into them. But I suspect it will be low priority given all the more pressing issues our state, country, world is dealing with. I’ll keep y’all posted. Sent from ...

Re: Diving during the lockdown

That’s good news, but I truly hope people don’t abuse this or we will end up in a much worse spot moving forward.

Re: Recent dive snaps for pie day!

I need to find some lumpsuckers that aren't orange or brown next season. Derek, Your post had me searching through my old lumpy photos for color variations. I think the bright pink one or yellow/red are my favorite. But it’s been a while since I’ve seen something other than orange or brown. https:/...

Re: ThThTh

Doesn’t seem like there is too much interest and I don’t blame anyone, given all the craziness. I’m heading to redondo in the next hour or so to splash a little early. Please join if you want to.

Incredible stuff! Those blue ringed octos and leafy sea dragons are amazing. It's cool to see someone posting about diving not at the GBR. Thanks for inspiring another bucket list dive trip. Sharkb8, thank you for the shout out. I almost went to GBR too, but I really wanted to focus on capturing th...

Re: South Australia Adventure - Leafy Seadragons and Pyjama Squid

Great cephalopod pics. And the seahorse picture is really cool. It reminds me of the pygmy seahorse pics except not nearly as flat as a lot of those turn out. The texture of the gorgonian (or whatever it's on) really pops. Much appreciated Derek. Thank you. I was excited about the seahorse pics too...

Wow, really loved reading your report along with the photos. So detailed. Way to rock the NWD shirt! The leafy and pajama squid are incredible creatures and worth the travel to see in this lifetime. It was bitter-sweet. There was something magical about capturing photos by myself and not worrying a...

Talk about Bonanza! You sure hit a paydirt down under! Thanks for sharing stuff which we don't see here. I appreciate you took the time to include narrative too, something I am not capable...

What a fabulous, detailed report! Edithburgh sounds like one of the best dives of your life. I liked how you peppered the pics into the narrative - a truly magical experience! Still think the LSD’s are my favorite of your awesome shots below - really like the silhouette of such a beautifully ornate...

South Australia Adventure - Leafy Seadragons and Pyjama Squid

I recently traveled to South Australia to capture photos of the rare Pyjama Squid and Leafy Seadragon. The trip down under did not disappoint. "The Diving" The diving was in Australia's summer time so the water was between 68-70 degrees. The week before I arrived it was 120 degrees. However, the wee...
