Re: What happened at octopus hole

Don't know if this is of interest, but I wrote an article titled Diving Safely as We Age for the current issue of Pacific Northwest Diver.

Being 66 and an underwater photographer, this is more than just passing interest for me.

Future of Mukilteo Diving

Thought I would pass along the following information from the latest Mukilteo Beacon. Looks like T-Dock diving is toast. . . . “What we’ve heard consistently throughout the process is about the issues of parking,” said Patricia Love, the city’s community development director. “We’re looking to balan...

Nootka Sound Lodging

We are heading back up to Gold River on Vancouver Island this September to photograph salmon and the underwater gorge, and are thinking about rounding out the trip with some diving in Nootka Sound, rather than Quadra Island off Campbell River. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding lodging i...

Re: Mukilteo Oil Dock Slated For Death in Spring 2015

Hey all: Mukilteo is going through a waterfront planning process, and I was asked to represent dive community. Have a schedule conflict and another individual is attending. Bottom line is with the new ferry terminal location, the future of diving at the Silver Cloud is very much up in the air. Parki...

Re: Driving over altitude after diving - best practices?

We dive with some folks out of tri-cities, and they regularly head back over Stevens or Snoqualomie after diving on this side of the Cascades without waiting. After packing up and driving it is probably two hours after exiting the water. In Baja, we regularly drive from Cabo Pulmo to La Paz over a 3...

We are working on putting on an underwater photo/video event at Town Hall in October called Salish Sea Celebration, so any comments might help us. I see very few comments so ...

This sometimes happens. All you have to do is call the Edmonds Police Department, and they will either unlock the gate or have someone from Parks do it.

Re: Underwater camera basics..

Lots of good input. Here is my two cents. If you are shooting a DSLR above the water and know what you are doing (shoot RAW, understand ISO, aperture, speed, white balance, etc) you will be horribly frustrated by a P&S camera very quickly. If you are learning photography/videography at the same ...

Early Edmonds Photos

We are working on an article about the founding of the Edmonds Underwater Park (pre Bruce Higgins), and wonder if any of you have photos of diving the site in the 1960's or 1970's you would be willing to share. If so, please drop me an email.

Thanks!

A comment and a request. First, looks like there is not going to be a photo contest as part of the re-branded Northwest Dive and H20 show, which will be held in Seattle this Spring.

Not being the brightest crayon in the box, the professional vs non-professional question was a bit easier for me. Were any of her actions sufficiently egregious to warrant me sending a note to other underwater photo contests and web sites and potentially have her "Black Listed?" Nope. If a...

Couple of thoughts. First, with regard to cheating. I sent Amanda an e-mail asking her to verify whether or not she cheated. If she did, or if there is no response, I indicated we would send a "Black Ball" note out to the major underwater dive competitions, Wetpixel, Scuba Board, etc. Toug...
