Snorkeling in Cuba ... zzzzz ☺
« on: December 25, 2012, 03:43:45 PM »
Hi gang.

Sorry for being so quiet..lots on the go since returning from Cuba. Not even got to the photos yet. But managed to paste some underwater clips together for a short video here.

I can hear John (chappo1) nodding off already. :P  ... it is pretty snoozey.

What I learned? It is difficult to take non shaky video underwater even when it is calm.

Was a tad warmer there than here... it is -27°C here this Christmas morning. ;)

Regards

Clive

I think that's a cool video...those are very handsome fish and they look very content also...colorful and nicely taken, Clive.. and I watched every single second of it - twice!

Nice one ... maybe not in a level of Jacques Cousteau, but pretty close ;-)

Thanks for you comments. Was fun ... most things are more fun than the cold here.. ;)

"not in a level of Jacques Cousteau, but pretty close" HA HA. Maybe I'll change my board name to Jacques. ;)  ... or not.

Clive,

A good point where surface wave action would make keeping a video camera still are real challenge. With scuba gear this is much easier because you are below the level of surface wave action.

Some similar fishes to the Red Sea, but not the amount of corals that I would have expected.

Nice video, and thanks for sharing.

Brings back a lot of memories of my dives in the Saudi Arabian Red Sea.

Regards

Dave
