I need a camera. These are just pictures of me taken by someone who was trying out his camera:
I dive mainly in New England, more specifically Rhode Island. Visibility is usually measured in inches, not feet and the water is usually a brisk 65 degrees or lower. A few times in my diving career I have gone down to Dutch Springs in Pennsylvania (that's where these are taken) and the visibility there is like 30 ft at times.
Every year my family does a Disney trip, and I always do Dive Quest. Awesome dive. If I can find my most recent video, I will upload it here...
This thread will keep my excitement up for the dive in Turks & Caicos. I actually hate all that equipment so I'm looking more forward to the snorkeling with my kids . I hope we get to see sharks! Visibility there is unbelievable . Went in the Turks abyss that is 7-8k feet where we were and I saw so far down I was shocked. Bright blue!
What Chesh said, Jaysee!
It's really fun. You'll see all about my fun Chesh. I'm usually really good at getting lots of pics on vacation(I usually end up with a 200+ pic album online to share my vacation with the kids with my family after each years Turks visit). I have to just get a new camera before I leave because my last dive worthy camera I made the mistake of opening it up then closing it up(the water proof case) while on the boat. So lesson of the day...rum and expensive cameras near water(and phones! lol ) are not Marie proof.
But here are the pics I found quickly.. I have many more. Some are of fish while diving or snorkeling but looks like my fav fish to take picture of are my kids. I dive down look at fish then look up and take pics of kids ..go figure :lol:
picture fest time.. these are all of turks. mostly last yr. http://i1008.photobucket.com/albums/af207/marie2237_photos/turksfeesh2.jpg
this is my son in '10(to the right..random person on the left..storm was coming in)
again my son in '10.. dives down looking at fish the on swim up takes pics of kid lol
one of my fav fish .. very rare fish
She doesn't wait for me..3yr old just dives in...so the tour guide freaks out and was hovering around her. They became best buddies when he tested her to see if she was able to be scared and she fell over laughing at his attempt to scare her and then told him there was a shark near him
Turks Abyss. She laughed when they offered for her to get in..but I sure did!
(Notice how the water is sooo much darker blue here)
Then my daughter and her best buddy (tour guide) went out together and caught lunch !
I has new diving camera! Be warned! this thread may get 164 underwater pics by next weekend.or the following weekend.. be very afraid. May even be good quality pics:shock:. OK peoples.. remind me it's a very very bad idea after rum punch while at sea to open up the battery compartment. k?
Internet here sux in a big way! But here are a couple from friday and some others to come. I'll let you see these as a prelude to whats to come. I'll load some more then head off to the beach and hopefully they will be loaded when I'm back in the room tonight.
