Re: fox island

That is a styling portable gear setup table! Glad you got to experience the east wall. Nice way to feature dive buddies and the spotted aglajid. I realize I've seen them before. White balancing will help with the colors. :boxer: :smt064 :eek: :pirate: :taco: :rofl:

Such flawless macro on that video!

Very well done not much I can add but I echo all previous comments. I’m also a night dive-aholic so these are great to see.
