Was there any macro around or just Sea Lions and urchins?
A couple sculpins maybe? Wasn't really looking. Pretty sure you could do a night dive off the dock if you wanted, though.

Food and hospitality are still very good. Rob and Amanda are great. Really appreciated Amanda's responsiveness over email while I was trying to make my way there.

That’s a cool lumpy shot. Don’t think I ever really noticed the texture on the tail before.

Hornby Island Sea Lions 2020-01

Earlier this month, I headed up to BC to dive with the steller sea lions at Hornby. Getting there was as much an adventure as being there. My trip started Sunday, and my original plan was to catch a Saturday Nanaimo ferry to give myself some slack. All Saturday ferries were canceled because of high ...

Sunrise Beach Park 2020/01/26

On Saturday, 7 of us met at Sunrise for a dive. Getting in was a bit difficult with the surface current pushing us out. We were crowded together hanging onto the buoy waiting for everyone to get ready to descend. Once we were down, the current did not really let up. I was trying not to get pushed ou...

Re: Alki Junkyard Saturday Jan 18

Nice pics! Been trying to find a sea spider for months with no luck. Gdog, I would adjust your white balance and saturation a little bit to make the blue in the BRO pop more.

Re: best beginner camera? (looking @ G7x iii vs TG6)

The TG-6 offers enough manual controls to get by. Having good strobes and photo editing software are also very important for developing skills. These days, I fuss with my strobes much more than ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. The TG-6's small size and close focusing capabilities have allowed me t...

Sund Rock 2020/01/05

vjw, nwdivegirl, and I headed out to Sund Rock on Sunday. We started off on the south wall. At ~75 feet, there is a GPO on eggs, but most of the eggs seem to have hatched and all I could see was an arm. https://photos.smugmug.com/Underwater/Seattle-Diving/Sund-Rock-2020-01-05/i-SN8BPT4/0/33413225/M/...
