Re: Sunrise?

Hi Holly, Sorry for getting you excited about Sunrise. I was going from memory on the currents. As I mentioned, the other most do IMHO is Hood Canal and specifically the more norther sites. Give Pacific Adventure a call. Don Coleman runs a fantastic operation and the sites phenomenal. Hood Canal is ...

The one we found was sitting right out in the open on top of the kelp when I first spotted it. I saw it from probably 6 feet away.

No pics? :nutty:

Re: Juggling a dive light and camera/strobe

N00b question here: I just got a proper strobe for my camera, having never used something like this, how do you juggle a dive light and a camera/strobe? I've seen some just use a focus light for a dive light, and I've seen one guy tape a regular dive light to the strobe. How do you deal? Canister l...

Lumpies at TTN

Kim (onefish) and I headed over to TTN this morning to check things out. Vis is still holding up pretty well. I was surprised to find 20-25'. The other surprise of the day was finding a lumpie hanging out in the kelp. This was during the day. I'm still forcing myself to do nothing but wide angle. Th...

Re: Strange things in the jellyfish galaxy

I love the galaxy shot. Very nice.

I was lost too on the "hitchhiker" until you gave the hint about the white dot. You're right, once you see it you can't not see it.

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Octopus Hole, Nov 23 2011.

A solid 6" down to about 5fsw then opening up nicely to 10'+ below about 20fsw.

Not a whole lot to see but still fun.

Re: The ongoing 'Dond Lumpie and Friends Show ...

Thanks Ron, Jeff and Kim (onefish) for a great dive. Kim found the one item I've been aching to see, a big, beautiful snailfish. She also found me an awesome big meaty pipefish. I decided to leave the 10-17 fisheye on the camera for the night dive just so I can get better with it and although the re...

You're doing it all wrong. All your photos are supposed to look like this.

I had AF off during the whole dive and was thinking that I was just having trouble with my vision looking through the viewfinder.

Nice Pics Ron and thanks for a great dive!

Met up with James and Kim this morning at (yawn) 0500 to dive the eel grass. We did a 72 minute dive and only found three lumpies..... That second one is fantastic Ron. It has an amazing feeling of depth. My pics on the other hand, well what can I say. Sometimes it just doesn't happen. https://lh5....

Re: ALERT: Attempted Camera THEFT

Don't be so fast to judge. They could be hapless stooges in the employ of a more sinister character hoping to get a "free" upgrade to his aging d100. Not that I'd know anything about that and I'll deny whatever octo confession you may be able to extract.

Re: The biggest Lumpie Ever

Check out Clipframes for a sharp and attractive framing option that is really cheap. Under $10 per frame if you buy online. I prefer to print at 11x14 and put them in a glass clipframe that is 100% of the size of the print. These frames are basically a sheet of glass, solid backing, and 4 metal cli...

Awesome! If you are getting good results with Costco, you will get outstanding results with m. Their prints are slightly more expensive, and you have to pay shipping costs (usually a flat $5). But, if you order multiple prints at a time, the shipping cost is really no big deal. They usually ship pr...

I figured an ugly model would make the pic look better. Kind of like girls who prefer "less attractive" friends.
