Thinking About Travel Again...

Was just thinking about the warm waters off Florida and the wrecks that await. I was wondering how do you get a good picture of a huge wreck? Looking back over my photos the only good pics I have are of small wrecks... Big wrecks tend to look like "a door" or some other small detail that conveys neither the size of the wreck nor the tragedy. Here are some pictures of our trip to the Salem Express ( WIKI ). The ship is over 360ft long and carried carried automobiles in addition to passenger decks. IMHO from these pictures one doesn't really have a feeling for its size or communicate the tragic loss. Its as if there is just too much ship; which I find almost as ridiculous as saying "there's too much story to tell."

Egypt anyone?

A Couple of Pictures from Anacapa

Some incredible marine life photos this past weekend that came out pretty good. Some nice ones of a cavern on the island. Amazing clear water!

So its June and the water temperatures are rising in southern California. By mid-September the waters around the Channel islands should be in the mid 70's. I'm looking forward to diving a 3mil and without weight.

For now here is a great video from my trip this weekend out to the Spectre:

Always a good time!
