Dive Report ~ Testing My New Underwater Camera

My First Time With My New Camera

Well, we finally got back into the water this past Saturday, and I must say, once again, the wreck of the SS Yongala didn’t disappoint. Along with our cooler winter temperatures, the whales are still out and although we didn’t get a chance to see one underwater this weekend, listening to them sing is just as beautiful. We were however graced with the sight of a gorgeous humpback on the surface on the way out aboard Adrenalin with Adrenalin Dive out of Townsville.

For the first time, I got to try out the newest addition to my dive gear, my new camera! Now sporting an Olympus OMD, I was very excited to see what I could capture. Olive sea snakes were of plenty on Saturday, and proved to be great subjects. I was able to capture some great shots of these guys and have posted a couple onto the website for your pleasure. We were also graced by the presence of many king fish, a green sea turtle and a marble ray. The marble ray was very cool, as it decided to show us just how it camouflages itself under the sand. Amazing to have the opportunity to observe the secrets of how these creatures operate. The rest of the usual suspects were out and about as well, and I’ve posted five pictures for your enjoyment today. Two great shots of Olive Sea Snakes, a beautiful Six Banded Angelfish, an amazingly camouflaged Cod and a great artsy shot of some bubbles escaping towards the sun on the surface.

It was such a great day both on and under the water! I can’t wait to get back out there and get some more great shots!!
