Did two dives at the famed USAT Liberty Wreck in Bali, Indonesia last month. I’m a little jealous of the fact that the locals have easy access to one of the most beautiful wreck dives in modern history. A shore entry from the resort and a few meters down leads you to this humongous America cargo vessel that was sunk by a torpedo during WWII. There were no casualties as the ship was already parked. Years of current drifted this wreck to the nearby shore.
Like my click-bait title? I swear these types of headlines are annoying. So yeah the video is awesome. But what “I didn’t tell you” is that I didn’t use any artificial light for this. My only light source was the sun!
See what I did there? LOL.
Anyway, over the weekend, we got the Sony RX-100 Mark II wet! Yep, we bought a new camera system for underwater photography. Not that I’m totally ditching my old Canon 350D — but a circa 2006 camera w/ 5MP in it can be a bit frustrating to use. They say that the best camera is the camera you currently have, so I currently have a Sony DSC RX-100 Mark II, a follow up to 2012’s RX-100. I will do a full review of the camera out of water in a separate post.
I got a chance to do a phone interview with renowned underwater
I am floating on top of a lush green hill topped with a derelict boat that isn’t supposed to be here. As I glide, my lightness becomes apparent as the wind blows my little self to and fro, commanded by the thousand maestros of bladed grass moving in unison below. There are butterflies that look like fish fluttering about the aged motor boat and rocks that litter about that resemble corals.
The wind tastes salty.
I am near the ocean.
2013 was an awesome year for SCUBA Diving. And I don’t use the word awesome
All photos were taken using a trusty Canon 350D. Wide angle shots taken using a Tokina 10-17mm lens and macro shots were done with a 60mm Canon macro lens. I shoot with two YS-110 alpha strobes from Sea&Sea.
